- Accountability – We will be accountable for our actions and hold our Members and Volunteers accountable for theirs, displaying humility for our mistakes and forgiveness for those of others. Actions are what matter and we will not judge others (or ourselves) by what is said nor make excuses for what is not done, but instead what is performed.

- Optimism – We will always be the eternal optimists, the hoper of far flung hopes, and the dreamer of improbable dreams, dedicated to supporting our Members and Volunteers to realize their goals, irrespective of how big or small.
- Commitment – We will remain true to our stated beliefs and will work tirelessly, irrespective of the challenges faced, to remain balanced and focused in the pursuit of achieving our Members and Volunteers goals.
