Together, we are

Providing Healthy Living Skills for Children and their Families

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 6-12 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 13 after school programs in various Northeast Edmonton locations. In 2018, AYP supported 428 unique children and 316 unique families.
Through our Healthy Snack Program we have offered 7733 healthy snacks to 498 unique children.
The AYP Community Library!
Located at Hairsine Community League now! (3120 139 Ave NW)

Our High School Leadership participants partnered with PCL Construction this summer to build this wonderful community library. They each painted a piece of wood which was placed on the side. If you have some spare time, go take a look at it! Take some of your old books to put in there for other kids who find the library. Take a book; leave a book at the AYP Community Library!

Our Values

Trust

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

Relationships

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

Growth

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.

Playfulness

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.

Empowerment

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

Creativity

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

2021 Annual Report

In 2021, AYP supported over 200 children across all programs. We also saw tremendous success with our healthy snack program, delivering over 3,000 healthy snacks to children and families.
