- Help young people transform volunteering, service learning, and civic engagement experiences beyond a requirement for college resumes to value-defining opportunities for personal growth and citizenship development.
- Utilize effective mentoring, coaching, and parenting practices that help young people believe in themselves and their abilities to improve the world.
- Cultivate eight core abilities that support youth development and engaged citizenship, helping children chart meaningful pathways through life and fulfilling roles in democracy and civil society.
