Cherished Values Character Group
Americans who want the cherished Values of the American people to be embraced by every child in the country.
Values +Commitment= Character
We want to instill and/or strengthen the cherished values that have made the country strong. We believe that our strength is in our values, and that we will remain strong only as long as those values remain the center of our lives.
We are educators, parents, spiritual, civic and community leaders who are deeply concerned about the future of the country. We are committed to a common core of values, a strong family life, youth development, and responsible citizenship.
Our mission is to have all American Children make the Cherished values of the American people the content of their character.
1. To have every young American become aware of the core values of the American people.
2. To have young Americans make these 25 values the content of their character.
3. To have youth understand character and the role values play in character.

Character is the degree to which one's behavior is in line with his/her values. It is the degree to which one is what he claims to be.
We offer staff development for teachers, presentations for students, parents, and concerned citizens to improve the school community. We have been very successful in our efforts.
Those who commit to good values demonstrate good character, the stronger the commitment, the stronger the character; the stronger the character, the stronger the person; the stronger the person, the stronger the country.
We have material and presentations for every age group and setting. Our programs will fit wherever there are young people who are in the values developing stage of their lives.
The missing element in most character programs is values. Without values, there is no way to instill and measure character.
Cherished Values is devoted to our core set of values.
We have texts for grades schooler and high school students, each containing age approach material aimed to get students to understand and embrace the cherished values of the American people.
Cherished Values Character program has a special approach for getting rid of bullying. It builds a bully proof circle, which is a circle of friends who surround the one who is being bullied with a wall of friends that the bully can't penetrate.
