Provide adults living with disabilities the chance to develop initiative and leadership skills, serve their community, be part of society and show others they have dignity and are valued citizens.
Values are the beliefs that guide you and your club in the projects and activities you do. They include doing the right thing; beings able to listen, communicate and lead others; welcoming the differences in people and being concerned about others.
Objects are the things Aktion Club members do that make them special. They include paying attention to people and their needs, not material things; treating others as you would like to be treated; behaving well and being a good citizen.
I pledge on my honor to follow the Objects of Aktion Club; to better my community, my country and myself; to help those in need, and to encourage everyone to get along.
