As a member of the Compassionate Communities campaign, Compassionate Austin has an inherent set of core values expressed in the Charter for Compassion and the Austin City Council Resolution designating Austin as a compassionate city.
As an Austin based movement and in recognition of Leadership Austin‘s example for our community, Compassionate Austin also affirms and supports the core values stated on the Leadership Austin website.
In practicing “3D” compassionate action (caring for others, self, and the Earth) we take on the mantle of teachers, mentors, and supporters of each other. Importantly, we are in the position to serve as teachers, mentors, and role models for youth who we actively engage in compassionate action as well.
Thus, as teachers, mentors, and role models, we support the Educators’ Code of Ethics (in particular for the “Conduct Toward Students”).
