  • Prepare youth to live in a richly diverse society through planned programs and services supported by an organizational posture and policies based on total equality and representation at all levels of operation.
  • Initiate and promote services which will enhance the quality of life.
  • Provide programs and services, both new and proven that are relevant to changing needs, with primary emphasis on optimal youth development and involvement.
