26 Years Serving Edmonton's Most Vulnerable Youth
This year marks our 26th year programming for Edmonton’s most vulnerable youth.
The practice, breadth and technological base of our programming has kept pace with the changes in our society. Our program philosophy of narrative development through the arts and mulitliteracies reinforced with a strength based approach to academic studies in Inner City High School still underpins our work. The wrap around nature of our programming has deepened, broadened and kept technologically apace with the changes in our society.
We're Changing To Meet Their Needs
Our direction is pointed by the needs of the youth in our programs and has broadened to meet their needs. We respect the resiliency of those we serve, their strength and courage as they struggle to overcome barriers such as lack of basic resources, homelessness, and desperation. Their strength keeps us moving forward.
A Collective Effort Requires Many Thanks
We appreciate and respect the collective efforts of our staff and Board as we work together to provide arts and academic programming for Edmonton’s high risk youth. Our responses to the needs of our youth as they struggle to make positive changes in their lives are detailed in the report. We would also like to thank our many funders for their continued support.
We'd like to acknowledge the creative work of Hök Nik Creative for their help bringing the report to life. Our long history working with Hök Nik (almost 20 years) shows their strong commitment to enhancing the community and to education. They supported this project with photography, layout and design, and the project management expertise required to get the reports printed.
