NRF Equity Statement 

The National Recreation Foundation (NRF) seeks more just and equitable access to recreation programs for youth living in the United States and its territories.  NRF recognizes that implicit and explicit disparities exist for some populations due to historical and systematic barriers to equality.  NRF is committed to providing opportunities for youth to build life skills and healthy futures by elevating positive models of youth development through recreation that lead to real change.  We believe that organizations that celebrate and engage a wide variety of perspectives in their work are better situated to accomplish positive, lasting change.  

As stewards of the NRF’s mission, its Board of Trustees and staff embrace and celebrate our common humanity and the inherent worth of all people.  We are committed to modeling diversity and inclusion in our programs and to maintaining an inclusive environment within our organization. 

We respect and value a wide spectrum of life experiences and heritages as evidenced by NRF’s Trustees and staff, who encompass a mix of identities in terms of ethnicity, gender, race, religion and sexual orientation.  NRF is committed to effecting positive change by supporting programs that provide inclusive and equitable opportunities for youth from disadvantaged communities to get active and outdoors.
