As suggested by Paul Rogat Loeb in his book, the Soul of a Citizen, children represent the future in a very real way. Instructing youth in the principles and practices of active citizenship, encouraging them to lead lives of commitment and compassion, and helping students articulate purpose, passion, and position clearly and with confidence begins in childhood with the rituals of everyday life. Daily rituals develop habits, and there is no more important a habit than learning to treat others with dignity, respect, kindness, and courtesy. Beginning at the very beginning of a child’s student experience, the foundation partners with parents and organizations with similar goals to bring quality programs to our community. Programs that develop character (National League of Junior Cotillions), encourage creativity (Performing Arts Development Cooperative), and build community (Graduate Leadership). Supported by individuals and businesses that share the mission of the foundation, together we are “building a culture of kindness that extends to the entire community of life.” Thank you for your support and encouragement.
