Put your passion to work at POETIC. Together, we can help equip girls who have experienced child mistreatment, commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking to find their voices, reclaim their narratives and persist forward.
POETIC 11 Core Values
Trauma-Focused: We all have a history of boundaries being crossed without our permission or understanding. We are not our past but are deliberate and mindful of our present and future.
Youth First: We strive to always act for the greater good of POETIC girls, not our self-interest.
Evidence-Based: We are rooted and guided in what is effective, yet agile enough to respond to change.
Social Justice and Culturally Responsive: We believe in equity; we are not color-blind, and we challenge the assumption of sameness.
Non-Judgmental: Daily, we practice a non-judgmental stance to ourselves and others. We strive to view ourselves and others through a lens of compassion, believing we are all doing the best we can – striving for a little better each day.
Honesty and Integrity: We extend truth, even despite the consequences, as we value transparency and humility.
Self-Awareness: We are committed to the assessment of our personal strengths and areas of growth.With humility and openness to learning, we will actively pursue opportunities and conversations that challenge us.
Balance: Valuable output is the greatest measure, not hours put in. Anyone can keep busy, but that does not equate to productivity.
Assume Good Intent: Extend grace and understanding to fellow POETIC team members rather than allowing assumptions to drive reaction and behavior.
Teamwork: We are stronger together – ask and offer help.
Amenable to Supervision and Professional Curiosity: With humility and an openness to learning, take the initiative to grow in your role and your profession.
