“One of the most important factors in developing youth resilience is having a relationship with a caring adult (The Learning Partnership, 2009). Positive relationships with these adults help to act as a protective factor for youth (Scrine et al., 2012).”


The Alberta Centre for Child, Family and Community Research (the Centre), was established to support and disseminate research knowledge and evidence on policy issues related to improving the well-being and health of children. The Centre is seen as an innovative leader in the development and dissemination of policy relevant evidence.
The Centre is collaborating with Alberta’s Promise, which was established to bring together business and community leaders to be champions for Alberta’s children and youth
