Challenge

Parents are a child's first educator, yet they receive little or no parent training for this vital role. Children are acting out at home and out of control at school. Educators are ill-equipped to promote a safe and caring school culture, promote character development and provide positive discipline. Bullying is rampant and is leading to a rise in suicide of children as young as seven. Employers are struggling to hire employees with strong work ethics and leadership skills.

Solution

The Five Strategies of The Virtues Project are practices that bring virtues to life in every relationship. They help us to live authentic, purposeful lives, to raise children of compassion and idealism, and to create a culture of character in our schools and communities. The Five Strategies apply from the moment a baby is born, to companioning people at the end of life. Facilitators teach children, parents, teachers, students, and leaders these strategies and simple ways to practice them.

Long-Term Impact

Home, school, and community problems lessen as parents, teachers, leaders, other adults and children learn to communicate with one another in ways that promote understanding, respect and self-esteem in themselves and others. The culture of the family, school and community becomes one of peace and unity. Children are better able to learn in a safe and caring school environment, have increased self-esteem, gain coping skills and tools to end bullying which lessens suicide.
