Our Three Core Values

Respect
Be wary of the language you use to get across your opinion. Try to maintain a polite and respectful tone to your work. Remember there is a difference between being opinionated and being insulting

Inclusivity
Empowering those that do not have a voice; our goal is to get as many young people involved with our project as possible, from all different backgrounds and walks of life

Acceptance
Just because you do not necessarily agree with something, does not mean it is not valid. Everybody is entitled to their own opinion be accepting of diversity
