MISSION AND CORE VALUES

MISSION
To provide a safe, supportive place where children and youth can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships and develop confidence and skills for life.

CORE VALUES
In our work with children, youth, families and communities, all Boys and Girls Clubs are guided by the following Core Values. They define us as a movement and are the standard against which all Boys and Girls Club services are measured.


INCLUSION & OPPORTUNITY
We strive to offer children and youth from all, economic, cultural and social backgrounds access to the resources, supports and opportunities that will enable them to overcome barriers and achieve their positive potential in life.
RESPECT & BELONGING
We provide a safe, supportive place, where every child is listened to, respected and valued, in an environment of inclusion and acceptance. Our staff and volunteers model honesty, fair play, positive attitude, cooperation and respect for self and others.
EMPOWERMENT
We believe all young people can grow into responsible, contributing and self-reliant members of society. Children and youth are at the centre of everything we do. Through adventure, play and discovery, we encourage and empower them to develop healthy lifestyles, a life-long passion for learning, leadership, life skills and a sense of social responsibility.
COLLABORATION
We work together with families and volunteers in each community, in partnership with the public and private sector, to create healthy community solutions to providing children and youth with what they need for optimal development.
SPEAKING OUT
We speak out on behalf of the children, youth and their families to reduce disadvantages, enhance their lives and enable their voices and ideas to be heard.
