Young people make Vermont better. This core tenet of our mission reflects our belief that Vermont and its communities are at their strongest when all voices—inclusive of every dimension of diversity, and most especially the voices of youth—are nourished, uplifted, and empowered.

In service to these values of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI), our staff and board have pledged a continuous commitment of our collective time and resources to challenging the systems, services, and policies—both internally and throughout the third-space realm—that have created inequitable, oppressive, and disparate opportunities for historically marginalized communities.

We recognize that the commitment to these JEDI values is ongoing and requires us to be intentional, socially-responsive, and ever-evolving in our efforts. Through the following actions, we will continuously strive to become a reflection of the children, families, professionals, and communities we serve and support, as well as be a guiding light for those seeking to dismantle immediate and systemic inequities:
