Character Day is an annual event that unites millions of people in schools, companies, and homes to develop and deepen their character: strengths like empathy, grit, gratitude, and leadership. Why? Because character development leads not only to school and career success, but also to stronger, more engaged individuals and a more just world. Last year, over 4 million people across 200,000 groups in 125 countries and all 50 states participated in Character Day.

This year, Character Day focuses on the relationship between character and technology. How does technology enhance our character development? How does turning off the screens enhance our character? Join us September 27-28, 2019 by signing up your school, school district, company, organization, congregation, or home.
