“Creighton delivers services that focus on Caring for Youth and Community”
In pursuit of this mission, we provide leadership in three areas:
Service to youth-at-risk and their families, to promote safe healthy participation in the community.
2. Community Involvement
Active partnerships within the community to embrace restorative justice.
Sharing knowledge and experience locally and outside our own community to enhance service and empower youth.
“Inspiring youth to nurture healthy communities”
All actions by Board members, management, and staff at William W. Creighton Youth Services are guided by shared values rooted in the Seven Grandfather Teachings . Acknowledging the origins of these teachings in an indigenous worldview, their universality provides a foundation for Creighton’s values.
Love to promote kinship and self-worth through devotion, admiration, and kindness
Respect to show regard for all people and things through courteous consideration and appreciation.
Bravery to face challenges, difficulties, and obstacles with courage and integrity.
Honesty to be trustworthy, truthful and straightforward
Humility to use a balance of equality with others and to accept oneself as a part of creation.
Wisdom to cherish knowledge and to use good sense and use of the wisdom of elders.
Truth to faithfully apply these teachings through sincerity of actions and words
Integrated throughout the teachings are three other values that guide decisions and actions at Creighton:
Accountability to be willing to accept ownership for one’s deeds and words
Responsibility to act dutifully and reliably
Empowerment to encourage strength and ability in others
