Goodbye Alexina! After 28 years, Alexina retired but not without a send off.
Inner City High School first opened with nine students in February 1993. That would make this our 25th year of offering an accredited arts and academic high school for Edmonton’s marginalized urban youth.
Many thanks to the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation for their support this holiday and throughout the year.
Our 2016-2017 Annual Report is now available online. The report outlines how we are working together to provide arts and academic programming for Edmonton’s high risk youth.
At Christmas time our Edmonton team assembles a backpack full of necessities and a few treats for each youth in our programs. Each pack generally contains bus tickets, $50 in assorted gift cards for food and necessities, $25 in movie tickets, gloves, a hat, socks, chocolate bars and sometimes blankets. We balance the bags carefully to ensure that the offerings are appropriate and nearly identical.
We rely on cash donations supplement our programming so that youth can move forward. We are also grateful to thoughtful donors who wish to brighten our youths' season with new items that bring holiday cheer.
We divide the donations we receive evenly among our youth.
