We are committed to being a safe place where ALL members have a sense of belonging, with barrier-free access to resources both academic and societal, and where they are inspired to be the best version of themselves.
Our Commitment to Safety
We work every day to create a safe, fun environment so kids can have every opportunity to be successful in life. We have ZERO tolerance for inappropriate behavior of any kind, including child sexual abuse or misconduct, and we put resources behind that stance.
Our Commitment to Equity
Our core belief is that all young people deserve an equitable chance to reach their full potential. We work hard on many fronts to advance the hopes and dreams of the young people who need us most. We believe in them and trust that if we can help them believe in themselves, they can and will go off to become caring citizens and make their own lasting differences throughout their lives.
Our Commitment to Trauma Informed Practices
We are committed to being responsive to all types of trauma. We continually evaluate how existing processes, practices, interactions, and environments may unintentionally trigger or turn others away from staying engaged with us and how the use of universal precautions can create a more welcoming, engaging experience with our organization.
