Core Values

Turnaround for Children’s Core Values are the guiding principles that support the organization’s efforts to unlock the potential that exists in every child:

  • We inquire, we learn, we innovate, we share
  • We interact with understanding and act with integrity
  • We seek diverse perspectives and confront uncomfortable truths
  • Together, we can change the odds

When you have 29 children sitting in front of you who have emotional needs, who have family issues, who have more problems than an adult could handle, and you're trying to get them to want to learn, that is an extreme challenge that I don't think many teachers are prepared to take on.
