We are guided by principles that help children become the best versions of themselves.

Our mission: To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Our vision: To be the premiere youth-serving organization in the nation.

Our values:

  • Youth: We always ask ourselves if actions are in the best interest of our youth and our teams serving youth.
  • Safety: We create and nurture spaces where youth and our teams can be safe physically and emotionally, where they can grow and be their best selves.
  • Fun: We are an organization that values fun and the impact that a fun experience can have on youth and our teams.
  • Honest: We are always authentic, telling the truth to ourselves, our youth, and one another.
  • Thoughtfulness: We consider all sides and evaluate our decisions equitably with the information we have.
  • Impact: We build and present programs, relationships, and experiences for our youth to drive real, positive growth and change in their lives and communities.
