A man with good character will show certain qualities in his personal life and how he treats other. These qualities or “virtues” include wisdom, courage, humanity, justice, temperance and transcendence, and in committed to political activism.
Qualities of Character
Courage and Humanity
Courage includes more that bravery in face of physical danger. Moral courage is arguably more important. A man who stands up for what’s right even when it isn’t easy, who tells the truth and who keeps struggling after hardship or defeat has courage. We also look for compassion, gentleness and love.
The quality of justice includes the ability to work well with others, to lead others effectively when called to do so and to treat everyone with fairness and equality. Temperance is the ability to avoid all forms of excessive behavior including excesses of the other virtues.
Justice and Temperance
Transcendence includes the spiritual side of life, but a man can have the quality of transcendence without necessarily holding any religious beliefs. Transcendence is the ability to think of the big picture, have a sense of beauty and joy and to be guided by some form of higher principle. Look for sense of purpose and meaning in his life. A man who has most of these qualities is a Men of Character.
Transcendence and Spirituality
"The purpose of the Men of Character is to improve the image of today’s youth and thus raise aspirational levels. Through club oriented responsibilities while serving the community and mentoring the youth. Realizing the hastening maturing of today’s youth, academic and educational advancement for leadership training, but will take advantage of this program to start the practical leadership process. We are dedicated to making sure our men have the opportunity to become productive members of the community."
We are looking forward to working alongside other men in the communityandhope to join other like-minded people to make a difference in the lives of our young men and women.
