Our Mission is to provide quality youth work that empowers young people to achieve better outcomes (for themselves, their families and their community)
Our vision is of young people who are valued, have self-belief, have a voice and reach their potential within their families and the community
In Bru Youth Service we believe that young people need to be at the center of all we do and we are committed to a young person centered approach.
We describe our practice as follows:
- We believe Youth work to be an essential tool to attain social justice and challenge inequalities, exclusion and discrimination. Therefore we see ourselves as active agents of change with a passion and a vision for young people to live in a fair, just and caring society.
- We believe that when we identify the needs of the young people we need to take risks and show courage in the responses we offer them. Therefore we commit to being brave, diligent and resourceful when creating opportunities for the young people.
- We believe that our life experience, culture and backgrounds enrich our work and celebrates the diversity within the young people. Therefore we commit to using our skills, knowledge and experiences to foster empathy for the young people, show leadership and inspire them.
- We believe that building relationships with young people needs to be an honest, true and respectful process. Therefore we commit to communicate truthfully with the young people and to consistently reflect on our work to remain relevant to their needs.
