OUR MISSION

To provide programs for children ages 6-12 within the community which encourage the development of effective living skills, pursuit of healthy lifestyle choices and connection of families to the community.

Abbottsfield Youth Project's mission is to provide programs for children ages 6-12 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.

WE BELIEVE

That every child has the right and the ability to learn the skills and knowledge to enhance their quality of life.

That every child has the right to express their feelings and to know they are valued.

That children have the right to grow up in a positive, healthy, secure and stable environment.

That the family, school and community greatly influence the development of the child.

That the most influential (positive and negative) periods in a child’s life occurs when he/she is young

That leisure and recreation activities are not a luxury but necessities to live a good and happy life.

That access to cultural and recreational facilities promote a sense of citizenship and community belonging.
