Our Core Values

The Chris Canty Foundation is able to successfully empower youth by positively emphasizing the importance of adhering to a strict set of core values.

HOPE - One of our most important goals is to inspire youth to achieve greatness by fueling their desires for positive life outcomes. The programs and initiatives we implement are structured to empower children to practice optimism so they can realize their true potential.

SERVICE - The Chris Canty Foundation encourages youth to aspire to be future role models by engaging them in activities that highlight community service. By integrating the importance of giving back to their communities in our efforts, we motivate youth to become future ambassadors who are advocates for positive actions that benefit the public or its institutions. fbq('track', 'ViewContent');

RESPECT - In order to become true champions in life, youth must develop a sense of the worth or excellence of a person. By challenging them to practice good behavior that results in establishing high self-esteem, youth become more successful in achieving their goals.

JUSTICE - We believe in implementing initiatives that inspire and empower all youth to be successful regardless of their background, race, religion or economic position. Understanding that champions are bred under varied circumstances, our goal is to set expectations centered around a concept of moral rightness based on ethics, rationality, law, natural law, religion, and/or equity.

COMPASSION - All of our efforts at the Chris Canty Foundation begin with a sympathetic consciousness of the needs of our community together with a desire to overcome those needs. We encourage youth to develop a compassionate spirit by exposing them to compelling projects and initiatives that service others so they experience the personal joys of giving back.
