Inner City Youth Alive relies heavily on donations from individuals and businesses to keep our organization fully operational with our relationship-based programs. These programs give inner city children and youth life skills that foster hope for a better future.
The Bridge Drop-in is a recreational centre for programs and physical activities, a place for kids to hang out, feel safe and accepted. The Bridge has anywhere from 20 – 50 kids per night taking advantage of the safe and accepting environment.
Meals for Kids
Many of the children we work with live in poverty, abuse and neglect. As a result they eat improperly or go hungry. Meals for Kids provides nutritious meals and snacks in a safe and nurturing environment. Learn more about Meals for Kids by watching the video below.
Gem Lake Wilderness Camp
Camp is a place where kids go to be fed, to be safe and to be loved. Gem Lake Wilderness Camp is set 250 km north of Winnipeg in the beautiful Nopiming Provincial Park. This remote camp is an escape for children and youth, in both winter and summer, from the pressures and conflicts of the city. Camp builds character, self-esteem, leaders and community. Taking kids at risk off the street for a week and sponsoring them at camp can change their lives forever. Learn more about Gem Lake Wilderness Camp by watching the video below.
Local Summer Staff
To make our summer programs of Daily Vacation Bible School, Gem Lake Wilderness Camp, Inner City Camp and Summer Drop-in a reality, ICYA hires neighbourhood youth and college students who have a heart for children in the community. Your donation goes toward their support, since it is difficult for them to raise it on their own.
Our staff is supported through donations made to ICYA by family, friends and acquaintances of the individual staff members. This enables ICYA to provide for the financial needs of our workers.
Your generosity helps us to give inner city kids the tools to reach their God-given potential,
thus creating opportunities for a better life.
