iHuman Youth Society is a non-profit, arts-based, youth organization in Edmonton, Alberta.
We work with young people (12-24 years old) who live on and off the streets, struggle with substance use and mental health issues, are gang involved, experience familial neglect or abuse, in conflict with the law and involved with child welfare. Through our programs, we help them work towards positive personal development, build a sense of belonging and community with them, and help them create opportunities to contribute to positive social change.
Our programs are open to all youth across demographics.
Indigenous youth make up an estimated 80 percent of our young people. iHuman recognizes the continued impact of colonialism, residential schools, and intergenerational trauma and violence on Indigenous communities.
