Life at the Crossroads (LATC)  is a skill and character curriculum that John15.Rocks School Club adapted to the school club. The lessons are interactive with relevant stories and small group discussions and activities. By combining “Filipino values” in each lesson, students are able to relate both Biblical and the traditional values that define our culture.

Building Character.

An important part of the 1-year curriculum is Lesson 7, “Building Character.” The principle of treating others as one’s self would wish to be treated was originally taught by Jesus. Today, we refer to it as the “Golden Rule.” However, this moral may also be found in liberal and godless societies which loses the intention of Jesus. Ultimately, Jesus is the role model for a good character. A good character is defined through the following traits.

Six Pillars of Character Traits

Respect
Trustworthiness
Caring
Responsibility
Fairness
Citizenship

This important lesson in Life at the CrossRoads is grounded on 1 Timothy 4:12-13, “Let no one despises you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.” Through this guiding verse, we hope to influence Generation Z in these important pillars of character traits. On the month of November, we join the nation in celebrating Filipino Values Month.
