Our Diversity Statement
The Ithaca Youth Bureau is committed to fostering a community and workforce that values, respects and includes all people. In order to ensure a safe, affirming and nurturing environment that is welcoming to everyone, the Youth Bureau actively celebrates differences and promotes mutual respect, cultural diversity and inclusion in all of our programs. It is our hope that our programs will assist participants and their families in developing new relationships that will strengthen and unite our community.
