Hate Has No Place at OYC

The mission of Oregon Youth Center is guiding, empowering, engaging, and inspiring youth in the Oregon School District. Since 2014 we have worked toward ensuring a safe, inclusive space for all youth and families, and strive to take that into the community. We also recognize the work that is to be done so that every human claims an equal and right place in our community. It is the goal of Oregon Youth Center to educate and advocate for our youth, which we know requires educating ourselves as well. 

Hate has no place at OYC. We expect each participant to be treated as the equal, valued member of society that they are. We will continue to work with other community organizations and businesses, as well as the school district, to promote equality across the board. While we are in the process of adjusting overall policies, we will be looking again at our discipline to ensure transparency and equity, and do our best to uphold those principals. We have also recently updated our training expectations and procedures to include additional information for all staff, and will continue to find ways to support their growth. 

Oregon Youth Center has grown on a foundation of transparency, and will continue to do so. Should any community member have a question, concern, or recommendation, please know we are open and encourage them. We can not heal and grow without trust and communication. We look forward to supporting all youth, regardless of race, gender identification, or income.

We do believe that Black Lives Matter, and look forward to growing with the community to make that clear.
