Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Virtue Ethics: An Ethical Development Program for High School Youth

Spiritual Preparation

Part of Virtue Ethics

To be a person of integrity, you must be trustworthy. Trusting and being trusted contribute to our feeling secure in the world. Some people trust easily; others have been taught to be distrustful or have developed distrust because of previous hurts. Where do you fall on the spectrum? Where and with whom do you feel the most trust? Why do you feel you can trust these individuals? Think back to your experiences with them and try to identify what in their behavior created the trust you have in them. Do people seem to trust you? If so, what qualities in you help create this trust? How do you show these qualities in your work with youth in this program?
