North Assessment Centre
The North Assessment Centre provides Assessment and Service Management, including six months follow-up, services to at-risk youth, sixteen (16) to nineteen (19) years of age, who wish to attend or are attending High School or an Outreach School, grades 10-12, and may require Learner Income Support.
Who we work with:
Youth living in the Edmonton, Northwest and Northeast regions (See Service Region Map) who require these services and could be facing challenges that could include but are not limited to a lack of stable housing, lack of parental engagement or support, English as an Additional Language, academic performance issues, family economic needs, childcare concerns, addiction issues, and other disability issues.
To ensure that youth who want to attend High School or an Outreach School but are experiencing barriers are provided with the financial (Learner Income Support) and personal support/ resources needed to achieve their educational goal. This could mean completion of Grade 12 or the minimum prerequisites to attend a Post-Secondary Institution.
Learner Income Support benefits provides eligible learners who may not have the financial resources to attend education/training with funding so they can access the necessary training to achieve the most direct & effective transition to employment/ further training. This funding is to be applied to School Fees and Living Expenses while attending school.
