Along with teaching values, our staff of Youth Development Professionals model appropriate behavior and standards. We reward our young people that demonstrate good choices with Character Credits. Some of the good choices that we encourage are:

- Think before you act-consider the consequences
- Be accountable for your words, actions, and attitudes
By demonstrating these acts, kids can earn their Character Credits. Our members' Character credits can buy not only their good reputation in their community, but they can also get scholarships for summer camps or get their loved ones gift items.
