Inclusion and Collaboration

We believe to break the cycle of homelessness through education, we must create an environment where all people, from all walks of life, are valued and included. When recruiting staff, volunteers, and community partners we welcome and encourage the unique perspectives, life experiences, innovation, and individual differences that shape us through our education, opinions, cultures, age, race, ethnicity, languages, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, disability, religion, veteran status, and beliefs. By embracing and valuing the unique qualities of all people, Brightlane Learning delivers programs and builds networks that contribute to ending homelessness through education.
