Virtue of the Week: Cooperation

Cooperation is working together and sharing the load. When we cooperate, we join with others to do things that cannot be done alone. We are willing to follow the rules which keep everyone safe and happy. Together we can accomplish great things.

You are practicing cooperation when you:

– Work well with others,

– Offer your help and ideas freely,

– Disagree peacefully and respectfully,

– Follow the rules,

– Ask for help when you need it, and

– Help keep a safe, happy environment.


I am cooperative. I respect the rules. I work and play well with others. I keep myself and others safe.

The Family Connection was established in 2005 by the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands as an early-childhood initiative. The mission of TFC is to strengthen the community child care and early education infrastructure in the USVI by building awareness of the importance of early learning and development for success and working with community agencies to promote quality care and education.

One of its efforts is the Virtues Project, an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities.

The Source supports the Virtues Project. We will publish one of the virtues developed by the project each week.
