Our Mission

To provide programs that encourage the development of effective living skills, the pursuit of healthy lifestyle choices, and the connection of families to the community.

Since 1986

AYP has been providing free life-skills programs for children ages 6-17 who live in high-risk North East Edmonton communities. Whether it be our flagship Community Outreach & Living Skills In-school program, our Community Explorers program or our ART with AYP program, our wide variety of after-school and evening program offerings foster the healthy development of each participant’s sense of self-esteem and self-worth.

With each of our programs, our focus is to create a learn-through-play environment and encourage the development of effective living skills, the pursuit of healthy lifestyle choices, and the connection of families to the community.

Today, AYP offers 9 auxiliary programs, and is partnered with 12 schools in the Northeast area of Edmonton. In 2022, AYP supported 233 unique children and 171 unique families. Through our Healthy Snack Program, we offered 5117 healthy snacks to 233 unique children.

Our Values


We trust each other to follow the rules and keep each other safe so everyone can have fun.


We take the time to get to know each other, include everyone, value differences, and respect personal boundaries.


We try new things all the time! Whether it’s a new snack, game, activity, or a new way to solve a problem, we are all capable of growth.


We believe it is so important to have fun (for kids and adults alike!). At AYP, we show good sportsmanship and participate in all sorts of games and activities.


We believe it is important to empower others, as well as ourselves. We empower each other through our words and our actions.


We value creativity in the activities we do, how we solve problems, and through engaging with free play and art time.

2023 Annual Report
