AYW CULTURE

CORE VALUES

Community, Service, Learning, Collaboration, Diversity, Equity, Empowerment, Compassion, Innovation. 

 

ABOVE THE LINE

Picking up the trash is the metaphor for taking care of problems, small and large, and never thinking “that’s not my job.” We don’t have rules about picking up the real or metaphoric trash. We try to create a sense of ownership for all employees so that this behavior comes naturally.

Our goal is to inspire people more than manage them. We trust our teams to do what they think is best for AYW — giving them lots of freedom, power, and information in support of their decisions. In turn, this generates a sense of responsibility and self-discipline that drives us to do great work that benefits the company.

We believe that people thrive on being trusted, on freedom, and on being able to make a difference. We encourage open, curious, committed to learning, above the line spirit. 

Here’s How We Operate Above the Line:

 

DISAGREE OPENLY

If you disagree on a material issue, it is your responsibility to explain why you disagree. Silent disagreement is unacceptable and unproductive. The back and forth of discussion can clarify the different views and help people reflect on what is the best course of action. We do not expect everyone to agree on all the matters but we expect you to be supportive in your disagreement. 

 

UNIFIED VISION 

Our programs are unified by a single vision: teach young people new skills and implement them to address some of the most critical issues of our communities, such as homelessness, disaster response and recovery, environmental stewardship, and access to affordable housing and healthcare.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION

American YouthWorks was established on the idea of a shared community. For that reason, one of our core principles is to create a diverse and inclusive workplace that reflects our employees’ backgrounds, cultures, perspectives, and experiences in order to better implement our mission to serve our young people.

We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer and we build teams that are stronger and more effective because of their diversity.

American YouthWorks strives to create a workplace that recognizes and honors diversity and equity. We all share a social responsibility to uplift each other so we can all succeed, and that idea is a key component of our workplace culture. It is an important part of our organization that just as we embrace differences in the youth and young adults we serve every day, employees treat each other with the same understanding, respect, and acceptance.

Our goal is to create an authentic and supportive environment where every employee’s contributions are valued and everyone has the opportunity to grow and serve.

 

What diversity, equity, and inclusion mean to us.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral to American YouthWorks’ history, culture, and identity. As an organization, our goal is to create a diverse and inclusive environment that embraces and advances equity and opportunity for all.
