Nominator Comments:

As a Success Coach at the Family Centre in Edmonton, Nikki Houde supports schools and vulnerable youth through the All In for Youth program. She spearheaded a pedestrian bridge with the City of Edmonton to showcase her school’s artwork on a pedestrian bridge and highlight Indigenous artwork. Nikki has also created partnerships so that the school can offer services from Hope City Church, Bennett Centre, the Neighborhood Empowerment Team, Amiskwaciy Academy, Spruce Avenue Community Leauge, Kingsway Business Association, and Kingsway McDonalds. Nikki wants students to know that there are adults in their lives that will support and guide them.
