Children, youth and families are the center of everything we strive for. We encourage and empower them to develop healthy lifestyles, a passion for learning, leadership, life skills and a sense of responsibility. We encourage a positive attitude, respect for self and others. We strive to work with children from all backgrounds. Our mission is to provide children and youth a safe and supportive place to be. Offering new experiences and opportunities to overcome barriers, develop self esteem and confidence. Giving all kids the opportunity for learning and life skills.
All children and youth discover and achieve their dreams and grow up to be healthy, successful and active participants in society.
In our work with children, youth, families and communities, all Boys and Girls Clubs are guided by the following Core Values. They define us as a movement and are the standard against which all Boys and Girls Club services are measured.
Inclusion & Opportunity
We strive to offer children and youth from all economic, cultural and social backgrounds access to the resources, supports and opportunities that will enable them to overcome barriers and achieve their positive potential in life.
Respect & Belonging
We provide a safe, supportive place, where every child is listened to, respected and valued in an environment of inclusion and acceptance. Our staff and volunteers model honesty, fair play, positive attitude, cooperation and respect for self and others.
We believe all young people can grow into responsible, contributing and self-reliant members of society. Children and youth are at the centre of everything we do. Through adventure, play and discovery, we encourage and empower them to develop healthy lifestyles, a life-long passion for learning, leadership and life skills and a sense of social responsibility.
We work together with families and volunteers in each community, in partnership with the public and private sector, to create healthy community solutions to providing children and youth with what they need for optimal development.
We speak out on behalf of children, youth and their families to reduce disadvantage, enhance their lives and enable their voices and ideas to be heard.
