OUR VALUES AND KAUPAPA

Values don’t mean much if they are not “lived out”.

At the core of all we do is the belief that every life is intrinsically valuable, full of potential and is capable of changing for the better. These beliefs are founded in a community-centric Christian philosophy which motivates us to connect authentically with the organisations and lives we are privileged to work with.
We value the Maori concept of ‘whanaungatanga’ which encourages a broad sense of family connection through shared experiences and working together. Our success in working with vulnerable youth and families has been achieved through authentic, caring, heart-to-heart, person-to person connections.

Over the past 16 years, Springboard  has identified key values that underpin the ‘heart at work’. These values guide our practice, the interactions within our team, with our young people and in our community.

WELLBEING

Whenever you make a choice that leads to being more healthy and whole.

BELONGING

When you open up your life to another.

HOPE

When it’s ok to dream and pursue a life of greater purpose and meaning.

PURPOSE

Discovering why you’re on the planet and walking it out with courage.

INTEGRITY

When you ‘own it’ and work in a way that you can be proud of.
