iHuman Youth Society is a registered charitable non-profit agency that has been working with Edmonton’s youth who engage in high risk behaviours population since 1997. We provide care and encourage authentic self discovery through art, music and fashion programming from our studio space in the downtown core. We build trust with youth, where others have been unable.
One of iHuman’s important goals is to establish a permanent home; enabling us to improve programming, retain our clients and keep more kids on the right paths in life. iHuman has moved five times in the last twelve years – like the youth, the program for maximum effectiveness, needs a stable facility. To this end we have launched an innovative $10.5 M fund-raising project modeled after an old fashion barn-raising that will provide a facility as well a sustainability fund so Edmonton’s most vulnerable kids will have a secure future.
iHumanʼs new studio – delivered through the All In! Edmonton initiative, will place a strong emphasis, energy and focus on how collaboration can play an important role for both community building as well as the crucial support services our youth need so that they can beat the odds and become healthy members of our community.
We have solid foundational support for All In! Edmonton and are excited to announce a unique partnership from Edmonton’s top design and construction teams – consisting of Kasian Architecture, PCL Construction, Clarke Builders, Keller Denali Construction, and Stuart Olsen Dominion as well as RJC and Hemisphere Engineering and BTY Group. Their collective and significant contribution represents an unprecedented effort to enrich our communities through the innovative application of partnership, collabor
ation, community service and leadership.
