Cornerstones of Life Directions

Mission Statement:
The Life Directions mission is to motivate young adults, ages 13-35 to mature into responsible, productive adults through self-direction.

National Training Center:
Our mobile National Training Center provides this-by tailoring its training and development to the climate and situations faced by staff and peer leaders particular to each community.

Investing in Values for a Lifetime:
Young Adults seek peers as they mature into adults. Life Directions promotes the powerful dynamic of “Peers Inspiring Peers through Forgiveness” in our neighborhoods, high schools, and middle schools. Moving from the paradigm of violence to the paradigm of forgiving calls for quality training and development-an investment in future generations.

The values promoted by, and incorporated through, our core programs benefit young men and women throughout their life. So they can mature into excellent adults capable of giving life to their families and communities. In this respect, Life Directions represents a proven, prudent investment in our future, from generation to generation, compounding with time.

Our Core Values:
The core values that guide the Mission are:

  • Practice self-responsibility

  • Create healthy balance in relationships

  • Embrace partnership in diversity

  • Discover a mission-driven attitude

Life Directions inspires achieving peers to motivate, mentor and lead their peers to take charge of their Life Direction!
