Whitelion has a vision of a world where no young person is left behind, where all young people have the right to equitable opportunities to reach their potential.
Our community of staff, volunteers, partners and donors are working together to build positive connections and meaningful pathways to work for young people who are at risk.
How we work together
We have four core values that guide how we think and act. Our values and behaviours are the standard we hold ourselves to everyday - in our interactions with each other, the young people we work with, and our partners.
Collaborative - we work together
Committed - we show up and do our best
Accountable - we deliver on our commitments
Inclusive - we want everyone to belong
These values were selected by our workforce when we developed Strategy 2023.
What we offer
Safe and inclusive culture
We believe that we are at our best when we can bring our whole self to work. We work hard to ensure our workplace culture is safe and inclusive. We create policies and processes that recognises, supports and celebrates diversity in all its form such as a our range of leave policies.
We're a dedicated group at Whitelion Youth and while we work hard, we also believe we do our best work when we are well rested, socially connected, and at ease with our home and community commitments. Talk to us about your flexibility preferences and we'll see what we can do to support you.
At Whitelion Youth we love to learn! We encourage and support professional development and we want you to be confident that the unique set of experiences you bring to our organisation will be further developed. As a Whitelion Youth team member we will provide you with professional development and leave options, regular development planning discussions, and a wide range of internal training including an extensive range of online learning.
Supported by a collaborative and engaged governing board, our leadership team is committed to creating an environment that promotes and supports our organisation values. We work closely with the Human Synergistics framework to support and guide us in delivering a positive workplace culture that delivers consistent high performance and positive outcomes for the young people we serve.
