To attract people who will enthusiastically deliver on our promise to young people and families in our community, we foster a supportive culture and a commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. Additional highlights that new employees are excited to hear about include:


You can be part of the important work we do for our entire community every day.
We know that healthy, happy employees are more effective and enjoy their roles. We have policies in place to back it up.

Our hybrid model combines the best of both worlds — being together at the office and finding time for remote work each week.


Our employee benefits take care of your present and future. We cover 100% of the employee’s health and dental insurance from your first day of employment! We also offer retirement benefits and short- and long-term disability.

Agency Culture

We Center Youth (the Individual and their Family)

  • We prioritize the needs and the safety of youth and families in our decision-making, actions, and owning our outcomes.
  • Listen to, learn from, and support youth to be experts of their own lives and futures. We develop with youth, not for youth.
  • We welcome all youth regardless of race, color, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or ability. We respect and affirm young people’s personhood, unique abilities, contributions, and ideas.
We Progress and Grow Intentionally

  • We strive to improve our services and impact in our community.
  • Demonstrate intention by choosing partnerships, making decisions, and using language that aligns with where we want to go.
  • We use creativity, innovation, and continuous learning to engage as many stakeholders as possible.
We Cultivate Belongingness
  • We encourage everyone to be their authentic selves and we strive to cultivate an environment where all youth, families, staff, board members, mentors, and community partners feel respected, valued, and accepted.
  • We bring participants together to provide an environment where they feel like they belong. We bridge gaps to drive agency-wide connections and partnerships.
  • Make opportunities to enjoy time together in meaningful ways.
We Commit to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Principles
  • Recognize and affirm the diverse backgrounds and lived experiences of all our stakeholders – youth, families, donors, mentors, staff, vendors, and community partners.
  • We amplify the voices of individuals who have historically and systemically been denied opportunities to affect change. We know our organization will continue advancing when we seek diverse viewpoints.
  • Progress DEI through continual learning and providing opportunities for our stakeholders to contribute to our mission.
We Succeed When We Collaborate and Communicate
  • Through strong communication between our staff, mentors, youth, parents, board members, and partners, we build impactful connections. Relationship building is at the core of our work.
  • We provide opportunities for staff and program participants to express their experiences, with the goal of advancing the organization and making improvements to support our communities.
  • We commit to building and sustaining effective collaboration throughout the organization. To do so, we must incorporate clear, inclusive communication in all our efforts.
