About Intentionally Great INC.
INTENTIONALLY GREAT’S VISION & MISSION
IGI’s mission is to create life-changing experiences for youth to thrive and succeed. IGI believes that
training and professional development for people who work with youth is a critical component of
achieving our vision. IGI’s training programs, networking, and resources efforts all work together to
improve the quality of youth services and promote youth development principles across a broad range
of communities, youth serving organizations, education, and businesses.
We see our communities filled with youth who can achieve personal and academic success, be
connected to adults and their community, have a positive vision of their future and grow up to be
healthy, productive and civic-minded adults. IGI is dedicated to ensure that all systems and services that
support youth are high quality so that youth get the supports and opportunities they need to succeed.
WHAT WE DO
• YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROGRAMS—PROVIDING YOUTH ENGAGEMENT, YOUTH VOICE AND CHOICE.
In our mission to change the lives of youth, IGI does a lot of work with adult youth-serving professionals.
However, we also run some amazing high-impact, engaging programs directly with youth, seeing the
impact and change up close and personal that youth experience. We are proud of our youth leadership
programs, which we feel are a model of a quality setting that offer dynamic opportunities for youth.
OUR ORGANIZATION’S VALUES
In working to improve the community, IGI lives and breathes the same core principles we inspire others
to bring to their work with youth. IGI hires and grows highly talented people who are committed to
youth success and the following core values, which are the heart of its success:
We build open and honest relationships that foster knowledge and trust. In this way everyone’s unique
ideas are brought to bear, and the results are awesome.
• SOCIAL JUSTICE:
To promote inclusion, our work honors diversity, equal voice and equal choice for all.
We embrace and drive change. To do this, we must be more curious than certain. Continuous
improvement often means doing things differently.
We bring a positive team and family spirit to our work. We create ways to enjoy the work, and engage
the heart and soul.
