Our Commitment to Diversity

To accomplish our mission, we believe that we must be responsive to the needs of everyone who receives our services. We implement and improve programs using information and input from our stakeholders: students, mentors, volunteers, educators, funders, board, and staff. We value people of all backgrounds irrespective of their gender, race, ethnic origin, disability, age, nationality, national origin, sexuality, religion, belief, marital status, or social class. We foster an environment of respect, openness, learning, integrity, and honesty. Our commitment to inclusiveness is evident in our organizational policies, procedures, and strategic plan.
