Our Mission

The Center for Community Values and Action was founded in 2006 to promote and strengthen the connections between ethics, education and action at Horace Mann School and in our wider communities. The center fulfills its mission by teaching classes, engaging in community action, developing programs, and providing resources. The mission requires both the development of new ideas and innovative strategies as well as the expansion and support of existing programs at the school. All of our activities aim to promote the personal qualities and social contexts that will create caring, socially responsible young people who are aware of their interdependence in the world.
