The vision of Protecting Chrysalis is a world where all young people have equal opportunities to succeed, regardless of their family background, and where the cycle of intergenerational incarceration is broken. We envision a society where families are supported and communities are engaged in creating positive change.
At Protecting Chrysalis, we value:
Transformation: We believe in the power of transformation and the potential of all young people to grow and thrive, just like a butterfly emerges from its chrysalis.
Support: We believe in providing a safe and nurturing environment for young people like a chrysalis protects and supports the developing butterfly.
Empowerment: We believe in empowering young people to break free from the cycle of intergenerational incarceration, spread their wings, and take flight.
Community: We believe in the strength of community and that by working together, we can create a supportive and inclusive environment for all young people to grow and develop, much like a group of butterflies emerging from their chrysalises.
Resilience: We recognize the resilience of young people who have faced difficult circumstances and believe that, with the right support and resources, they can emerge from their struggles and thrive, just like a butterfly that emerges from its chrysalis stronger and more beautiful than ever.
