One day - Introduction to the Virtues Project

Learn and practice Five Strategies to turn your classroom and school into a community of caring, that builds relationships, and helps students make choices based on what is good and right. The Five Strategies are:

  • Speak the language of the Virtues

    • Language has the power to inspire or to discourage. Using virtues to acknowledge, guide, correct and thank awakens the best within us.

  • Recognize teachable moments

    • Recognizing the virtues needed in daily challenges helps us to become lifelong learners open to the lessons of character.

  • Set Clear Boundaries based on restorative justice

    • Boundaries based on respect and restorative justice create a climate of peace, cooperation, and safety in our homes, schools, and communities.

  • Honor the spirit

    • We sustain our vision and purpose by integrating virtues into our activities, surroundings, celebrations and the arts.

  • Offer Companioning

    • Being deeply present and listening with compassionate curiosity guides others to find clarity and to create their own solutions.
