Values

Empowerment – we believe that children should be supported within their families and communities to reach their full potential, and that each child’s development can be enhanced by positive, nurturing relationships with caring adults. Our programs are dedicated to empowering children by strengthening their personal abilities, confidence and interpersonal skills.

Capacity – we believe that children have the capacity to lead full and rewarding lives and become contributing adult members of their community. We are committed to building the capacity of our community by collaborating with dedicated volunteers in building relationships with children and families. We believe that the delivery of children’s services in the community will be strengthened by alliances and collaborative initiatives with other organizations that share and demonstrate a commitment to our values.

Accountability – we believe that children should grow up in an environment that supports their well-being and enables them to realize their potential. As such, we are accountable to the children we serve for delivering effective programs that are consistent, safe and reliable. We believe rigorous screening, matching, monitoring and training standards must always be maintained in our programs.

Inclusion – we believe that our programs must support the diversity of the community we serve.

Excellence – we believe that the strength of our organization comes from the commitment of our volunteers to building a vibrant community through their active collaboration with our professional staff in both service delivery and governance. We have a responsibility to provide an environment for our staff which recognizes and supports their contributions to our organization and provides opportunity for personal and professional growth.
