Over 20,000 groups around the world have already signed up for the third annual Character Day, set for September 22, 2016! Character Day is a free annual day and global initiative where groups around the world screen films on the science of character development from different perspectives, dive into free printed discussion materials, and join an online global conversation around the importance of developing character strengths (resilience, grit, empathy, courage, kindness)--all rooted in evidence-based research. Character Day is one day. The resources are available year-round. Sign up your school, classroom, organization, company, congregation, or family to participate. It's completely free!
When we started making our first film on “character” three years ago, The Science of Character, we teamed with countless scientists and educators for research, and searched across the web for resources. We found a plethora of amazing research and tools, but what we didn’t find is one place that aggregates all the ideas and resources around character from different perspectives. One hub that brings it all together. We decided to start building one.
Join us to learn more about Character Day and hear from some of our fantastic partners about ways to bring Character Day to your community. Everyone is invited, whether you’ve already signed up for Character Day or not.
Preorder your discussion kits early to ensure your kits arrive before your Character Day event!
