Joint Statement from the Board and Executive Director, Clark Callahan. 

Like many others following the death of George Floyd, CHSC is angered, disturbed and broken hearted. Our country has waited far too long to recognize and eliminate the racism that has plagued our nation since its founding. As an organization, we are committed to the work of eradicating racism, seeking justices and empowering all people. Now, more than ever, we will dedicate our assets, time and energy to this important work and to the continued education of the many diverse communities we serve.

Mensaje de parte de el Director Ejecutivo y Junta Directiva. 

Como muchos otros después de la muerte de George Floyd, CHSC está enojado, perturbado y con el corazón roto. Nuestro país ha esperado demasiado tiempo para reconocer y eliminar el racismo que ha afectado a nuestra nación desde su fundación. Como organización, estamos comprometidos con el trabajo de erradicar el racismo, buscar justicia y empoderar a todas las personas. Ahora, más que nunca, dedicaremos nuestros activos, tiempo y energía a este importante trabajo y a la educación continua de las diversas comunidades a las que servimos.

Core Values

 

The Core Principles of CHSC guide and ground our work together as a community. We believe when these principles are practiced with fidelity and discipline they lead to profound growth and results for young people.  We encourage anyone who observes us not living up to these core principles to let us know so we can continue to improve our work.

  •  Relationships:We believe that learning happens when relationships are built on trust and respect. 

  • High Expectations: We believe that by expecting the most of ourselves and those around us and holding each other accountable leads to our greatest potential. 

  • Growth: We value continuous improvement of ourselves, each other and our practices. We seek and apply feedback, reflect on our practice, maintain a can-do positive attitude, approach changes and challenges as opportunities to learn and celebrate each of our unique strengths in support of continuous improvement. 

  • Inclusivity: We believe that by embracing and learning from all people we become better, produce higher quality work and become more empowered. 

  • Wellness: We know that to perform and grow, we must feel safe and cared for, so we work continuously to  holistically meet the physical, emotional, social, spiritual, environmental, occupational and intellectual needs of everyone in our community. We believe that healthy people perform better. 

  • Third...Fourth...Fifth way: Our students embody this value and as partners with them, we work to emulate the practice of finding ladders, bulldozers and other solutions to the vast number of walls, roadblocks and problems we encounter.
