In 1997, a few Edmontonians, including a group of youth, came together to solve a problem: there were too many neglected and abandoned young people on the streets. Some were homeless. Others battled addictions and mental illness. The route to crime was too easy. And there was no existing model that worked well to solve this problem.
So iHuman Youth Society built an alternative model that was more attractive, more powerful and more Edmonton: we built it on creativity. iHuman invites and helps young people to find new directions and pathways in their lives through caring, artistic expression and authentic programming.
