Character Lives develops character and instills servant leadership values in our youth.
Character Lives provides teachers a curriculum to reach students on a social-emotional level. The curriculum is based on the CharacterStrong model developed by educator John Norlin.
Time-tested and proven effective, the model is now being used around the United States. It is transforming schools into places that truly care about the well-being of others and instilling values that are transforming communities.
Kids want to be good. Early childhood research has shown that toddlers innately want to help and share with others. Over time, however, they don’t always know how to practice good in their lives. They aren’t given the tools or the accountability or the opportunity to be compassionate, selfless people.
Character Lives allows educators to get back to the core of teaching—teaching young people and not just young test takers. It fosters meaningful relationships and deeper connections throughout the community. Through teaching the skills of empathy and kindness, the curriculum equips young people with social skills and empathy, helping them realize that life is not about them: that true joy and meaning comes from serving others.
