“Stephen Mandels greatest legacy may be teaching all of us that a city is only as strong as the voice of its most vulnerable people. A city and its future are only as strong as the vision and opportunity that we have provided for our young people. They are our future – but only if we stand up together and make sure that not one youth will ever be left behind.” Steven Csorba





Are You In? Would you share your talents if it meant one youth would be given a chance to change their life’s path, and realize his or her potential? It is not only the people in the public eye who have a chance to leave a legacy in this city. Each one of us has a stake in our community, and has the capacity, capability, and desire to make a difference.

Heroes Need Apply. Saying “yes” to iHuman’s Extreme Makeover means you and Edmonton’s construction leaders will rally your talents and join a team of community-building heroes. Participants will: Exchange a moment in time for many lifetimes of potential found. The youth at iHuman live a rough life on the streets. iHuman is one environment where they feel safe, and partake in outreach programs that help each one rebuild self-esteem and trust, essential for reconnecting with their purpose in the community. Though the renovation of iHuman’s new home will amount to a short moment in time, the outcome will last lifetimes, giving Edmonton’s youth a chance to change their life paths and realize what they are capable of achieving.

Show Up and Share Your Talents. The Stage is Set. The Extreme Makeover of the 22,000 square foot building in Edmonton’s “Quarters” will be documented on film and broadcast nationally. Suppliers and trades will work alongside Edmonton’s construction leaders, including KELLERDENALI Construction, PCL Construction, Clark Builders, and Stuart Olson Dominion, to support a project that will revive Edmonton’s inner city, and give iHuman kids a permanent home in which to grow and prosper. With project management and permits in place, and drawings complete, we are appealing to you and your expertise to review the issued building permit drawings and bring forward solutions, and contribute in-kind services or materials to make iHuman’s new home a reality.

Notes / Sugesstions / Ideas:

The project construction schedule will be dramatically condensed in an “Extreme Makeover” fashion and it will be documented. Once the Building Committee has organized necessary trades and suppliers to participate a firm construction start date and schedule will be defined.

Scopes of Work The nature of this project and the building committee structure requires that defining scopes of work be a very consultative process between the building committee and the various trades and suppliers from each division who have chosen to get involved. As a trade or supplier you would traditionally be issued a scope of work to bid or propose on. In this case we are appealing to you to review the issued for building permit drawings accompanying this “Invitation to Participate” and this “Community Building Heroes Booklet” and bring forward solutions.

Reach out on an authentic human level to support your community and business legacy. iHuman is an organization grown from Edmonton’s giving spirit, creativity, legacy builders, and true community heroes. iHuman’s Extreme Makevoer is a chance to engage in something larger than us, as individuals. This project is not only about the future of youth who need a safe place to call Home, but about building upon your own business’ future and brand in Edmonton. Suppliers and trades on this project will connect with construction company leaders, on a business level, as well as on a human level in an opportunity to build relationships in a non-competitive environment, to improve chances of future bids, and establish a brand in an environment where the greater good speaks louder than all else. It is also a chance for business owners and managers to connect on a meaningful level with employees and partners. Come together to weave the fabric of a strong community and city, as well as that of your own team.
