Explora’s Core Values

January 10, 2019

Learning

We advocate for self-directed, hands-on experiential learning as a foundation for innovation, creativity, and critical thinking.

  • Lifelong learning is inherently valuable and essential for growth.
  • Everyone has something to learn and something to teach.
  • Challenge and persistence are core to learning, and questions are often the best answers.
  • Learning can be difficult and uncomfortable; we strive to be open to the opportunity.
  • Family, caregivers, and peers are essential partners in learning.

Community

We celebrate the diversity of the community in which we live and grow, and we create environments where all community members are welcomed and valued.

  • We are strengthened through the diversity of our staff, visitors, and board.
  • Our resources are available to everyone.
  • We welcome others to our table, join them at theirs, and work together toward common goals.
  • Our essential value derives from our relevance to our communities.

Generosity

We practice and cultivate generosity through listening, respect, and the sharing of time, ideas, and resources.

  • We engage in tangible actions to support the community and each other.
  • We act in good faith, and we assume good intentions.
  • Active listening enables us to nurture relationships and help people find their voice.
  • We embrace diverse perspectives in pursuit of shared aspirations.

Sustainability

Organizational health enables us to act boldly for the long-term benefit of Explora, our community, and our partners.

  • Our staff and volunteers are our greatest resource, and we invest  in their growth and development.
  • Financial health allows us to pursue new ideas and be responsive to the needs of our community.
  • We use our unique expertise in the development of programs, exhibits, and environments in order to remain valuable and relevant.
  • Partnerships are essential, and many goals are best pursued with and through others.
  • Our responsible business practices recognize environmental stewardship as an essential component of our decision-making process.
