               Strengthening resilience
               Nurturing imagination, creativity, and curiosity
               Improving health, well-being, and quality of life
               Healing, reconciliation, restoration, and renewal
               Advancing economic, financial, business, and entrepreneurial literacy
               Increasing self-reliance
               Increasing civic literacy to become more politically empowered and strategically engaged in our public affairs
               Growing a community of support for ongoing learning, discovery, and renewal
