Cultural Coaches

Cultural coaches provide support to ethnocultural youth and their families in our partnering schools.

Cultural coaches

Cultural coaches create inclusive school environments that identify and celebrate differences. They seek to promote understanding, empathy, and compassion amongst students and staff by focusing on prevention, inclusion, equity, and intersectionality.

Through trauma-informed, relationship-based work, the program aims to help youth:

  • Create positive connections to culture
  • Develop a well-rounded sense of identity
  • Feel an increased sense of belonging
  • Increase their feelings of safety and support within their community. 

 

This is done through one-to-one goal-setting, group settings, and community engagement and development. 

Cultural coaches are funded through the City of Edmonton’s Family and Community Support Services.
