WE ARE ALL IN

equity & INCLUSION vision

In the fall of 2020, an internal Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) committee, named “All In” was formed, made up of staff in a variety of positions representing each of our Clubs and administrative office. This committee took on creating an Equity & Inclusion Vision for BGCSPS, that speaks to all of our stakeholders who are all in as we work together to create great futures for our young people. Developing the Vision was a months-long process of learning, sharing, and brainstorming by our staff, Club members and our Board of Governors. This Equity & Inclusion Vision is filled with so much heart, hope and pride; it will act as a road map for our organization for years into the future.

equity & INCLUSION STATEMENT

Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound is an anti-racist youth development organization that works to break down barriers and stand against injustices that have held individuals back for so many years, in particular people of color. We have policies, standards, and systems in place for each child, staff, board member and volunteer to follow, that reinforce the celebration of diversity, the pursuit of equity, and inclusion of all. As a youth development organization we believe that every young person, no matter their race, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, ability, socio-economic status, and religion, can become productive, caring, responsible humans, and we are committed to providing access to the resources and opportunities that each need to reach their own great futures.
