We believe that we must intentionally address community needs while incorporating community voices in the design and implementation of our programs. Based on a framework of social-justice, rather than social-service, and strengths rather than deficits, we aim to create a model of community driven systems change that engages all stakeholders (youth, families, communities, schools, service providers, government, etc.) in a coordinated manner to collectively dismantle inequities.
