Is to build a healthy community by stimulating entrepreneurship, promoting education, and empowering those who may need it.
Relationships: We believe in the power of relationships to change lives and systems. We stand in our long-time commitment to putting people first, both through built-in flexible programming to fit the individual needs of our participants, and also in how we allocate resources, so that staff has time to build authentic relationships with mentors and youth.
Racial Equity: We believe that cultivating strong racial and cultural identity is particularly important for building a more just and equal world with our clients. This can show up in many ways in our programs from having strong racial diversity represented at all levels of leadership and staff, to training our mentors on how to cultivate positive racial/cultural identity with clients, and highlighting the contributions and leadership in our communities.
At Three Seeds organization, we believe that our clients deserve a community that values all parts of their identity, that works to change discriminatory systems, and invites them to contribute to those changes. Unfortunately, due to historical inequities and outdated mindsets, families from low-income backgrounds often have less access to services that respond to their unique needs. Systemic racism is real, its effects are pervasive and complex, and the time to eliminate it is long overdue. This remains a priority in our organization.
Our board and staff unanimously commit to becoming an antiracist organization, to examine our internal systems through a racial and cultural lens, and to change our systems to ensure that the lived experience and contributions are prioritized and valued as equally as white dominant experiences and contributions. We will hold ourselves accountable to families, youth, and leaders who are black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC).
We’re family-oriented. We believe in the power of family. That’s why our relationships are often more than just one-on-one. We’re responsive and flexible. We’re professional. Our program offers intensive support so that families get the most out of their experience and have the highest potential for success.
