How All In For Youth Helps Edmonton Students
High school graduation is a critical milestone in gaining employment. We all benefit when everyone graduates from high school. The estimated cost to Albertans with respect to health, social assistance, and criminal justice for a student who does not complete high school is $29,200 per year - for the rest of their lives.
All in for Youth (AIFY) is a partnership of 10 Edmonton organizations to support high school graduation. AIFY offers success coaching, family supports, mental health therapy, mentoring, and nutritional supports – for a cost of only $1,250 per student, per year.
When schools were closed in March, AIFY donated laptops, provided internet, delivered food, and supported students’ and families’ mental health, relationships, and coping.
