Our Mission, Vision, and Values
Thoughtfully created by students, staff, and stakeholders
Our Mission & Vision
WPY collaborates with youth, families, and partner organizations to address long-standing systemic inequities while building a community of belonging and opportunity for Waltham youth. We envision a world where young people have the skills, resources and opportunities to participate fully in their communities and create their own paths to success and well-being.
Our Core Values
We will ensure that all young people feel welcome, connected, fully accepted, and loved as they are; their voices are valued and important.
We believe that when we intentionally and proactively build relationships with colleagues, students, families, and community partners, we are better positioned to affect community-level change.
We approach all interactions with a sensitivity to the unique lives of others and a commitment to minimizing harm.
We believe in the power and potential of all young people and seek to include youth as co-creators of our work.
