OUR VISION


We are dedicated to youth development through education of the higher principles and values in stoic philosophy, and critically the development of the four central cardinal virtues of Wisdom, Justice, Temperance and Courage in the pursuit of happiness.


Our vision is to support young people to consider their personal journey through Life and help them deliver positive and constructive change for the greater good through their life contributions.

IN THE WORDS OF MARCUS AURELIUS



Marcus Aurelius - Statue


Approach each action as if it is your last; dismissing the wayward thought, the emotional recoil from the commands of reason, the desire to make an impression, the admiration of self and discontent with your lot . . . if you can follow these principles, the Gods will ask nothing more.


- Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, Verse 5, Book 5
