Equity and Social Justice

Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Washington believes every young person deserves a safe place at Club and to be seen, heard, and valued for who they are every time they walk through our doors.

As an organization, we consistently implement culturally responsive, trauma informed, and restorative practices. Together we work to meet each individual’s present needs by creating a safe, positive, and inclusive environment for all to thrive.

Boys & Girls Clubs of America is taking an active stand against racial inequities and the oppression of minorities in this country. By operationalizing principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion, we are continuing to adapt our practices, policies, and programs to dismantle barriers and systemic racism. We are committed to being a part of the solution and creating a place where youth, families, and staff of all races, abilities, genders, and backgrounds are encouraged to express themselves and are helping to lead the way.
