We know that all children can succeed, given the right supports and opportunities. For a variety of reasons, students and their families experience challenges that interfere with academic success and a positive experience at school.
We have partnered with over 80 schools in Edmonton to ensure students, their families, and the school employees receive supports to:
Success coaches help youth who have been hurt emotionally, are disengaged, and have lost their confidence in others. Coaches foster a positive school experience and build confidence and skills for academic success.
Mental health therapists provide a combination of counselling and group work, customized for the child and their family.
Roots and Wings provides in-home support to families. We work together with families to ensure their needs are front and centre, resulting in meaningful solutions based on their unique lives.
The Family Centre is a part of All in for Youth, a local initiative focused on getting children and youth successfully through their education years and on to high school completion.
The Family Centre’s team had a tremendous, positive impact on our school. Their expertise and professionalism gained them the respect of staff and students alike. They provided much-needed supports for many children this year, who may not have had access to counselling otherwise. They were able to set up Girls Group and Boys Group in addition to individual counselling sessions. They have become valued members of our community.
