Ambassadors of Compassion

The Ambassadors of Compassion (AOC) Program is an interactive, coach-led, character development and youth leadership journey that equips youth with resiliency and the personal leadership skills necessary to navigate and succeed through life’s inevitable challenges. The Fort Service Learning Magnet Academy Ambassadors of Compassion Program focuses on the R.I.S.E Principles.

The R.I.S.E. Principles:

R – RESPONSIBILITY (Exploring the characteristics of a responsible person and the need to take ownership of one’s thoughts and actions to help accomplish one’s goals and dreams in life)

I – INITIATIVE (Understanding that initiative is an action step based on one’s decisions that results in a multitude of lasting benefits, including strong and healthy relation- ships and reaching one’s greatness in life)

S – SERVICE (Discovering the importance of serving others and also serving the needs in the community)

E – EXPECTATIONS (Examining the power of expectations in one’s relationships and in one’s goals and dream, and distinguishing and evaluating the difference between realistic and unrealistic expectations and knowing how to manage them)
