Core Values

Core Values

In our work with children, youth, families and communities, all children, youth, and families are guided by the following Core Values. These Core Values are the standard by with all BGC Club services are measured.


We welcome everyone in a safe, accepting environment based on belonging and positive relationships.


We ensure that everyone – children, youth, families, volunteers, staff – is heard, respected, valued and treated fairly.

Encouragement and Support

We encourage and support every child and youth to play, learn and grow to achieve their dreams.

Working Together

We work together with young people, families, volunteers, our communities and government.

Speaking Out

We speak out with children, youth and families so that we can make our world better.

Commitment to Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

BGC Peel is committed to building a sustainable organization that embraces diversity, actively pursues equity through policies and programming, and adopts an inclusive environment. The core values of belonging, respect, encouragement and support, working together and speaking out are the standard by which all BGC Peel Club services are measured.

We continue to value diversity across several intersectional dimensions, which includes but is not limited to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious beliefs, disability status, and age.

We respect and value diverse life experiences and cultures as we work with children, youth and families across the community. We strive to ensure an accepting environment with positive relationships. Our unwavering belief comes from knowing that our differences are our strengths, and from there we will build healthy, supportive relationships with caring adult role models to positively influence our members’ life path.
