CATCH is more than just a charity in Leeds; it is a beacon of hope and a symbol of community empowerment. Our mission is to create a safe and inclusive environment where individuals from diverse backgrounds can come together, learn, and grow. For over a decade, we have been working tirelessly to achieve this goal, and our efforts have been rewarded with a thriving youth program that boasts over 1000 members.
One of the keys to our success has been our commitment to our core values. These values were created in collaboration with young people, and they reflect our commitment to equity, inclusion, and community. Our values are not just a set of principles to guide our work; they are the heart and soul of our organisation. They are what makes CATCH special and unique.
Our core values include:
We believe that creativity is a powerful force for positive change. We encourage young people and adults to express themselves through art, music, and other creative outlets.
We believe that everyone has the right to be heard, seen, and valued. We work to empower young people and adults to take control of their lives and to create positive change in their communities.
We are committed to creating an environment where everyone feels welcome and accepted. We celebrate diversity and work to ensure that everyone has a seat at the table.
We believe that great things can be achieved when people work together. We work to build partnerships and collaborations that bring people together to achieve common goals.
At CATCH, we don't just talk about our values; we live them. We embed them in all of our work programs and initiatives, and we encourage every volunteer to demonstrate these values in action.
Our SuperStars Volunteer Development Program is designed to help volunteers develop the skills and knowledge they need to become leaders in their communities. We believe that by working together and living our values, we can create a better future for everyone.
