Mission & Vision

Exciting News for 2023!

Our Executive Director, Katie Peterson Lopez, shares our plans to serve youth directly and to find solutions for mental health crises affecting children and adults.

Our mission is uplifting lives—creating infinite connections, possibilities, and love!


We believe that robust and resilient families serve as the cornerstone for nurturing our future generations of healthy and thriving citizens!



Our mission revolves around nurturing fundamental qualities and principles, including honesty, responsibility, emotional intelligence, resilience, and robust mental health and well-being, within families and communities.

We are dedicated to the concept of proactive well-being, focusing on strategies that yield better outcomes than attempting to address issues downstream once they have become entrenched, which can prove immensely challenging to reverse. This strategic approach will contribute to a reduction in societal challenges downstream, and the impacts of our endeavors will have a lasting intergenerational effect. With three decades of substantiated evidence, we firmly affirm that individuals who adeptly grasp and apply the tools and principles encompassed within The 10 Greatest Gifts framework will unlock their greatest potential—empowering both families and communities to not only survive but also to flourish!


Our mission is uplifting lives—creating infinite connections, possibilities, and love!

At The 10 Greatest Gifts Project our mission is to cultivate positive change by fostering hope, empowerment, and meaningful connections in the lives of individuals, families, and youth, while strengthening communities. Through innovative programs, collaborative initiatives, and unwavering support, we aim to inspire and nurture the inherent potential within each person, guiding them toward a future filled with purpose and possibility. We are committed to spreading joy, compassion, and the belief that every individual, from the youngest to the oldest, possesses the power to create a lasting, positive impact on the world.

We hold the conviction that resilient and robust families form the bedrock of both the well-being of our citizens and our collective future. Through the proficient implementation of our services and the collection of success stories and assessments, we will gauge the presence of increased connection, communication, and mental and emotional wellness among individuals. As a result, children will mature into healthier, productive adults, contributing enhanced value to their families and community. Furthermore, adults and young adults will embody effective communication, life, and coping skills.


At our core, we are driven by a set of unwavering values that guide every aspect of our organization which is dedicated to elevating consciousness in life, parenting, and leadership. 

Empowerment: We believe in the transformative power of knowledge and skills. We are committed to providing individuals, families, and communities with the tools they need to take control of their lives, make informed decisions, and chart their paths to success.

Inclusivity: We value diversity in all its forms. We create a safe, inclusive environment that embraces people from different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. We recognize that every individual brings unique strengths, and we celebrate the richness that comes from our collective differences.

Collaboration: We understand that meaningful change requires collective effort. We actively foster collaboration among families, communities, educators, organizations, and volunteers. By working together, we amplify our impact, creating a network of support that transcends boundaries.

Resilience: We recognize that challenges are a part of life’s journey. We instill and embody resilience as a foundational skill. We practice and teach individuals to overcome obstacles, adapt to change, and emerge stronger from adversity.

Empathy: We practice empathy as a guiding principle. We listen to the stories and experiences of others with an open heart and seek to understand their perspectives. By walking in each other’s shoes, we build bridges of compassion and connection.

Quality: We are committed to delivering high-quality, evidence-based education. Our programs are designed to be relevant, practical, and effective, ensuring that the tools and methods we impart have a meaningful impact on the lives of families, youth, and communities.

Long-term Impact: We envision our work as an investment in the future. We believe that the skills we impart today will create a ripple effect, shaping the well-being and success of generations to come. Our focus is not just on immediate outcomes but on building a legacy of empowerment.


Our vision encompasses a vast and interconnected network of individuals, communities, families, and organizations coming together and collaborating to spread these priceless tools to every corner of the globe without regard for societal class, identification, race, or religion. This collective effort aims to enable individuals of all backgrounds to share in a transformed and empowered existence.

Envision a world where each child grows up with a sense of wholeness, safety, and confidence. Visualize a world where every child develops self-reliance and nurtures a belief in their capacity to make astute decisions. Envision a world where every child embraces responsibility and honesty.

Consider the profound impact this paradigm shift would have on their formative years and education. Reflect on the ripple effect it would have on their careers and the positive contributions they bring to the global community. Contemplate the lasting influence it would exert on their families and the future generations they bring into the world.

This vision is already unfurling before us. We will witness a decline in divorce rates, family discord, poverty, addiction, incarceration, and reliance on social services.

As our youth mature with steadfast qualities and values, and adults and young adults possess essential life skills and tools like responsibility, honesty, self-reliance, self-esteem, and integrity, people worldwide will observe a rise in graduation rates, engaged citizens, robust mental health, and physical well-being. Above all, we will witness a surge in nurturing, affectionate, interconnected families.
