Mission Statement

The Character and Ethics Project is a community-wide effort of the people of Glendale and the foothills. It grows from the conviction that each of us can strive to be a better person. Individual self-improvement produces a better community and everybody benefits. That is our goal!

Character is the nature of a person with the courage to care about doing the right thing regardless of pressures and conflicts. Ethics describes accepted principles for choosing right over wrong, especially in complex situations.

Greater awareness of character and ethics leads to higher standards of conduct. As we improve our conduct we foster greater awareness in others.

Groups from business, civic, school, religious, youth and service organizations are each initiating programs for spreading the character and ethics spirit. Your help and support are vital to the Project. Read our Making a Difference section and join this community-wide effort now!
