We offer hope by teaching these 10 Universal Principles:



Treat others with respect in all situations.


Integrity is doing the right thing even when nobody is looking.


Show self-control in order to maintain a safe and healthy lifestyle.


Demonstrate courage even in the face of self-doubt and fear.


Balance your self-confidence with healthy doses of humility.


Exercise excellence as a habit and a consistent part of your life.


Show great compassion for those less fortunate than yourself.


Generate enthusiasm in yourself and others towards a positive purpose.


Contribute to teamwork and reap the benefits as well.


A person of honor consistently makes the right choices.


You probably see children and teens in your neighborhood or favorite shopping plaza. When you see them, do you ever stop and think about what they will be like in 8 or 10 years? With depression, suicide rates, and school shootings dramatically increasing among our students, we must act now.
