Kaleidoscope Academies - Phase 1 & Phase 2 - Edmonton, Alberta

Want to make a difference in the lives of children and youth? Then, you need to be here.

It’s working! Youth and adults are changing how they see themselves and their communities. Caring and connected adults are giving youth the ability to thrive amidst life’s challenges. Kaleidoscope Connect gives adults a “full-color lens,” providing a better understanding of youth and the daily battles they face: bullying, drugs, alcohol, suicidal
thoughts, etc. This renewed clarity gives adults the tools and opportunities to connect with youth as they grow in meaningful and measurable ways.

Who should attend? Anyone who works with children and youth, whether in a school, family-serving organization, faith-based community, are a parent, relative or friend of a teen. We also encourage teens/young adults to join us.
