Responsibility In the Community

vs. unreliability

Knowing and doing what is expected of me

To practice Responsibility, I will:

  • do my work to be best of my ability
  • keep my commitments
  • clarify expectations
  • not make excuses
  • correct my mistakes

    Rights and Responsibilities

    Living in a community means accepting Responsibility for how you affect others as neighbors. Being a Responsible community member means you are free to act within your legitimate rights, but this is not in a vacuum. You also need to respect the equally legitimate rights of other community members. Respecting their rights may impinge on your rights, and we have the Responsibility to know where this boundary is. Community Responsibility is more than just what I can do but also what I should do. We have the Responsibility to help those around us. It can be as simple as returning a neighbor’s garbage can for them or donating to a food pantry.
