Our Core Values

Our core values reflect what is truly important to Bellwether as an organization. These values are embedded in our organizational culture, and they guide how we work with our clients and with each other.

Mission Mindset

We are focused on dramatically improving education and life outcomes for systemically marginalized young people and their communities. Our nonprofit status allows us to focus on this mission and guides the people we hire and the clients and projects we support. 

Tailored Excellence

We work with our clients to develop customized, innovative solutions. We direct our unwavering focus on quality toward successful outcomes for our clients.


We believe the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and that our teams make each other better.


We exemplify the highest standards of individual and organizational ethics. We carefully balance client confidentiality with transparency to other clients and the public.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We believe that to achieve our mission, we must be a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization broadly reflecting the various communities we serve.


We believe in the philosophy of “working smarter, not harder.” We trust our co-workers and teams to do excellent work in the manner they see fit.

Candor With Care

We believe open, honest conversation, paired with trusting relationships, is vital to our work and growth. We respectfully and proactively deal with frustrations, disagreements, and unexpected hurdles with each other and with clients and external stakeholders.
