Staff are the most valuable resource of an organization. Think about the hard work you and your coworkers do on a daily basis. Adults like you also have the opportunity to help children develop character, knowledge and lifelong skills.

Below are resources you can use to encourage staff, families and community members to lead by example and become active role models for the young people in your community.
