Our mission is to promote the development of character traits such as caring, responsibility, and citizenship by helping others. Our pledge is, “I pledge to have courage, include others, be respectful and responsible, act nonviolently, and celebrate the ways I can improve the world.”
In developing these character traits and by living by our pledge we believe we are sowing the seeds of empowerment and developing young leaders that care about others and the world in which they live.
