We Are A Youth Development Agency
We believe that inspiring all youth to become responsible, caring and productive members of society is important to our community. We accomplish this through our Youth Development Strategy. It is the way our professional staff and volunteers communicate and interact with young people to build in them:
¨ A Sense of belonging: A setting where young people know they fit and are accepted.
¨ A Sense of Usefulness: Opportunities to something of value for others, to assume real responsibility and contribute by doing real work.
¨ A Sense of Influence: A chance for young people to be heard, to lead, to take part in decision making, and feel that they have control over their own lives.
¨ A Sense of Competence: The feeling that there is something each young person can do well.
This Youth Development philosophy is consciously employed in every interaction between our staff and the young people in our club.
