All in for youth
All In For Youth is a community collaboration between United Way, Edmonton Community Foundation, City of Edmonton FCSS, The Family Centre, Big Brothers Big Sisters Society of Edmonton and Area, E4C, Edmonton Public and Catholic Schools, and the City Centre Education Partnership. All In For Youth offers a combination of services aimed at increasing child literacy, technical aptitude, and social skills, in order to reduce any barriers to learning.

Neighbourhood Empowerment Team (N.E.T)
N.E.T. is a strategic partnership between the City of Edmonton Community Services, Edmonton Police Service, The Family Centre, and United Way of the Alberta Capital Region. Strong communities and shared responsibility for crime prevention are at the foundation of the Neighbourhood Empowerment Team (N.E.T.) program. Teams work with residents, business, and organizations, building sustainable solutions to crime and disorder. N.E.T. promotes and supports participation in crime prevention activities, building on strengths of the communities we serve.
A typical N.E.T. team is made up of a City of Edmonton Community Capacity Builder, an Edmonton Police Service Constable and a Youth Liaison from The Family Centre, offering a diverse mix of community, policing and youth services.
