Youth Unlimited sees the hope and potential in every young person.
Our vision is to be a primary influence within the youth culture of the capital region, in order to foster the transformation of the negative elements of the culture into a culture of love, hope, realized potential, and positive social action.
We want to see the marginalized accepted; the needy helped; the victimized restored: the type of work that was exemplified by Jesus.
Helping Edmonton's youth to discover their unlimited potential and to use that potential to positively influence themselves, their peers, their schools, and their communities.
WHO WE ARE
Youth Unlimited Edmonton is made up of a team of dedicated and compassionate youth specialists who have a desire to share life with and walk alongside teens as they explore their potential and discover hope for themselves and their communities.
WHAT WE DO
Youth Unlimited invests in the lives of youth by providing Holistic Care, Mentoring Relationships, Safe Communities, and Opportunites to Give Back.
WHO WE SERVE
Youth Unlimited values and serves all teens as equals, regardless of their faith, culture or circumstance. We provide barrier-free support to all youth in each of our programs.
WHY WE SERVE
Our Community Youth Workers desire to reflect the same love and grace of Jesus Christ that they have personally experienced, with the youth they encounter. Our goal for youth is not simply prevention, but positive transformation.
WHAT WE VALUE
We believe that intentional relationship is the starting point for significance and change. Our youth, partners, and team members are more to us than a “Client”, a “Number” or a “Tool”. We value building deep, long lasting and meaningful relationships with everyone we encounter.
We believe that innovation is the key to making meaningful connections with youth today. We are willing to break the mould in order to serve youth, provide them with the best opportunities available and introduce them to a loving God.
Our desire is to see the lives of youth positively transformed. Through the relationships we build and the activities we engage in, we long to see young lives changed for the better as they encounter Jesus and enter into a new way of life.
