WRAP ED

WrapED is a 5 years program that was partially funded by Public Safety Canada (2013-2018).

Wraparound Edmonton, or WrapED, is a partnership of six Edmonton organizations working together to help young people (between 12 and 17 years of age) affected by violent crime move away from the threat of gangs and learn to thrive in our community. REACH acts as the backbone organization for WrapED.

The partnering organizations are;

  • Africa Centre
  • Edmonton John Howard Society
  • Edmonton Police Service
  • Native Counselling Services of Alberta
  • REACH Edmonton
  • YOUCAN Youth Services

WrapED uses an intentional approach to help youth build meaningful relationships. Engaging one-on-one with a youth facilitator, WrapED youth:

  • Learn to understand their needs and develop goals to make positive life changes
  • Identify a personalized care team that will provide the long-term supports they'll need to make that change

Since WrapED is on its final lap we are no longer accepting referrals. However, based on the skills that our facilitators have acquired over the years we may be able to refer potential youth to other programs that they will be able to benefit from.
