DEVELOPING CHARACTER
All of our programs focus on developing the character traits of Honesty, Caring, Respect, and Responsibility. Staff also work with youth through the following practice areas:

  • EMOTION MANAGEMENT: Adults support youth to be aware of and constructively handle both positive and challenging emotions.
  • EMPATHY: Adults work with youth to relate to others with acceptance, understanding, and sensitivity to diverse perspectives and experiences.
  • PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT: Adults encourage youth to act, persist, and initiate goals and outcomes even through the upts and down of difficult situations and challenges.
  • RELATIONSHIP BUILDING: Adults foster experiences where youth plan, collaborate, and coordinate action with others.
  • RESPONSIBILITY: Adults develop youth to be reliable and committed and to fulfill obligations and challenging roles.
