GROWING NEXT GENERATION THOUGHT & SERVICE LEADERS
Scott Foundation takes its commitment to the kids and community seriously. Too many youth are exposed to violence, poverty and crime, which in most cases leads to them repeating the cycle.
Our goal is to nurture a child’s compassionate heart with moral education, lessons in peace-building and selfless service through a program that provides direct experience of the inner values of self-awareness, peace, love, unity and selfless service.
Offering inner experiences with the creative arts whereby children become motivated to help others through selfless service. With the foundation of mindfulness, children learn to love themselves and build empathy and compassion through this program’s nurturing of their inherent goodness.
Our desired outcome breaks the cycle of poverty and violence and mindfully develops the heart and purposeful career path of foster kids. Finding true self, they become successful community-minded, "whole-people" with significantly decreased addictive and violent behaviors. This helps prevent the future need for more costly social and criminal justice services. These developing Selfless Superheroes lead the charge, stepping forward and ready to bring about social change; they are our next generation Thought & Service Leaders.
