MAKE EVERY KID A KID OF PRIVILEGE!
We are an accredited, quality-licensed social profit agency that has been in the community since 1981. We offer programming for children aged 12 months, to youth 22 years of age.
We are committed to transforming the lives of vulnerable children, youth and their families by providing safe places and offering services and programs designed to meet the evolving needs of our community. We want our kids to develop confidence, gain skills, and experience success so that they can reach their best potential in life. We believe that every single kid counts.
Our organization is constantly keeping a finger on the pulse of the community to evolve with its needs. We plan to advance our program offerings to fill the gap in Youth Mental Health, Indigenous Youth programs and Inclusive Programming within Wood Buffalo and surrounding areas.
The development and growth of our youth is something we hold dear to us because we know that they hold the keys to a better and brighter world.
To provide safe, supportive, inclusive spaces where children and youth in the Wood Buffalo region can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships, and develop confidence and skills for life.
All children and youth in the Wood Buffalo region grow up and become adults who are engaged, feel a sense of community, and realize their best potential.
