Pivotal acknowledges the land we primarily serve are the traditional territories of the Ohlone Tribe, Tamien Nation, Muwekma Tribe, and Ramaytush Tribe.

In honor of these Indigenous peoples, we uphold their values of protecting and caring for our community.

We believe in the worth and dignity of each individual and promote their right to self-determination. Our core mission uplifts the lives of those in and out of foster care to connect them to impactful opportunities. Our scholar led approach incorporates mindfulness of all levels of identity, such as BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disabled people and all others, and their intersectionality. Through our work, we strive to promote an equitable environment that grows and adapts with continual education and increased awareness, investing in our participants, staff, and community.

These values cultivate a sense of belonging by advancing Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
