On this episode, we learn about All in for Youth (AIFY). Graduating high school is a major factor in breaking the cycle of poverty. AIFY is an initiative that helps socially-vulnerable children and youth find success through their school years by providing a range of coordinated supports to them and their families.
Tune in as we talk with Annette Malin, Manager of Community Strategies at United Way, Alberta Capital Region, and we meet two students who have participated in the AIFY program.
Correction: In this story, we say that All in for Youth is a collaboration of 9 partners, but the correct number is 10, including ECF.
