Originally founded in 1992 by Edmontonians as the Greater Edmonton area sports and recreation association, operating out of a 980 square foot location at the time, what is known today as the Crystal kids’ foundation provides an invaluable service to Edmonton’s inner city youth.
Crystal Kids’ mission has expanded far beyond promoting health and physical fitness for inner city youth. They aim to foster youth self-esteem and help ensure their mental and emotional wellbeing. Through Crystal Kids, youth and their families can access invaluable resources and support networks to help maintain dignity and balance in their lives. They also reach out to those who suffer from isolation, including seniors and recent immigrant families, providing them with healthy communication and positive social interaction.
