Our four targets to strengthen young people are:
Belief in a Higher Power
Accepting human brokenness and embracing restoration is the first and last step toward the top. We help people understand how it is possible to experience freedom and peace.
Nobility of Character
A person’s nobility is their noble character and behavior. We help students develop qualities of high moral character, such as courage, generosity, or honor.
We coach dads and moms with skills to keep parenting fun while not losing their children’s love and respect. Kids and parents learn about setting loving limits without loosing their cool.
We teach an active belief in the value of human life that practices benevolence and provides assistance to others, in order to better humanity for moral, altruistic and logical reasons.
