THE PILOT OF OUR MISSION
"Core values serve as a lighthouse when the fog of life seems to leave you wandering in circles."
Core values are the light that guides our team, mentors, and students.
New Haven Counts builds a network intended to support students in realizing their limitless potential. We focus on mindset development and actively seek out beautiful, creative dreamers who want to make a positive enduring impact on the lives of individuals and the public education system as a whole. We want to engage both our youth and our community in believing we can achieve things not readily in sight.
We strive to teach staff, teachers, and mentors to be their best selves each day, influencing others to do the same. Being ones best self means being visionary and thinking We hope to build a community of mentors and scholars who take intentional steps to be better today than they were yesterday. We stet ambitious goals for our students and support them in the process to promise and prosperity.
It takes a village to raise a child. We believe that a system of cascading mentorship will create a greater New Haven community full of visionary thinkers who are committed to excellence, courage, and authenticity. Relationships are the intangible keys to creating a diverse and inclusive community of educators, families, mentors, and students.
The challenges of today's educational system are real, but we cannot back down from the challenge. Courage means operating with intention and urgency to change the narrative around the ability of students to achieve excellence. We choose courage and look to each other for strength.
Authenticity means truly caring about the work you do and the person you are. We value genuine spirit, humility, and good vibes.
