Our Mission and Values

Mission Statement

THE MISSION OF THE FREEDOM AND VIRTUE INSTITUTE IS TO PROMOTE INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY, SELF-RELIANCE, AND HUMAN DIGNITY.

The Freedom & Virtue Institute believes in fostering attitudes and leading initiatives that build off the principle of creating self-reliance among underprivileged children and individuals enduring hardship that wish to better their situations and live a dignified, self-sustainable life.

Presently, the Freedom & Virtue Institute conducts two unique causes:  The Self-Reliance Clubs
and the
Effective Compassion Training programs.

Our Values
Five core values support and accomplish our mission.

Jim DeMint from The Heritage Foundation
  • Individual Freedom: True individual freedom is only realized when we understand that we are in control of our destinies.
  • Human Dignity: Value and enhance individual dignity by promoting character, self-worth, entrepreneurship, and individual well-being.
  • Education: Teach the principles of effective compassion to families, communities, volunteer organizations, and churches; and those we teach spread the message throughout their local communities and across the country.
  • Initiative: The best instrument in building lasting and positive change in our society is by acting as a community-supported and private economic initiative.
  • Self-Reliance: Replace the attitudes of entitlement and dependency by teaching individuals that they must be accountable for their own lives and well-being.

Our Guiding Principles

PERSONALISM AND INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM

LIMITED GOVERNMENT

EFFECTIVE COMPASSION AND HUMAN DIGNITY

The Freedom & Virtue Institute strives to educate citizens on America’s founding principles of limited government and individual freedom and to uphold the ideas of human dignity and personal responsibility that result from having free will. We bring opportunities into the local community for citizens to learn, discuss and implement our causes.

In pursuing our goals, the institute does not support/endorse any specific political party or candidates, but instead looks at the “big picture” and the role of government in our society. We believe human freedom and private initiative in local communities are the best instruments to create lasting positive change in our society.
