Our Guiding Principles

  1. We serve as a catalyst in improving the lives of New Britain’s youth.
  2. Diverse communities contribute important beliefs, experiences and ideas that drive local solutions.
  3. Families are key partners in learning, wellness and positive youth development.
  4. Interventions are most effective when community partners are dedicated to long-term, shared responsibilities that will positively impact our youth.
  5. Community-level data is important to use to make efficient use of resources and to develop and implement comprehensive solutions to critical problems identified in the community.
