VOICES: Manitoba’s Youth In Care Network is under the stewardship of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Winnipeg Inc. The core values of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Winnipeg are:
Inclusion & Opportunity
We strive to offer children and youth from all economic, cultural and social backgrounds access to the resources supports and opportunities that will enable them to overcome barriers and achieve their positive potential in life.
Respect & Belonging
We provide a safe, supportive place where every child is listened to, treated with respect and valued in an environment in inclusion and acceptance. Our staff and volunteers model honesty, fair play, positive attitude, cooperation and respect for self and others.
We believe all young people can grow into responsible, contributing and self-reliant members of society. Children and youth are at the centre of everything we do. Through adventure, play and discovery, we encourage and empower them to develop healthy lifestyles, a life-long passion for learning, leadership and life skills and a sense of social responsibility.
We work together with families and volunteers in each community, in partnership with government and other organizations, to create healthy community solutions to providing children and youth with what they need for optimal development.
We speak out on behalf of children, youth and their families to reduce disadvantage, enhance their lives and enable their voices and ideas to be heard.
