Core Values

L.E.A.R.N. because we are lifelong learners.

Listening

At ASTRO, we have placed our highest priority on hearing what our clients, employees, and constituents are telling us. In order to meet the needs of the people we serve while ensuring the highest possible satisfaction rates in the programs we offer, we make sure every voice is heard.

Empathy

Empathy comes from the feedback we receive. It is important that we learn to share the feelings of others in order to understand their point of view. Being empathetic is one of the most important components to successful teamwork and collaboration.

Awareness

Lessons in self awareness and social awareness are built into our organizational documents and learning curricula. It is important that everyone involved with ASTRO is concerned and informed about social determinants of health.

Respect

We all must share this planet; and, ASTRO is committed to make sure we do that in a safe, happy, and healthy way. In order to respect our planet, we must be mindful of how we impact our environment. In order to respect our neighbors, we must have regard for their feeling, wishes, rights, and traditions.

Nourishment

When you become a member of ASTRO, you can count on nourishment of the mind, body, and soul. All of our programs: educate participants on the best practices/health benefits of arts, sports, and technology subject matter; provide healthy snacks/meals; and incorporate time for mindfulness and meditation.
