Waltham Partnership For Youth

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.

Courageous Honesty

We believe that real change requires that we be truthful with ourselves and others about what works and what does not and that we have the courage to do the right thing, especially when it is hard.


We believe in the power and potential of all young people and seek to include youth as co-creators of our work.
