Sign up for Character Day

Character Day is an annual event that brings together millions of people in schools, companies, and homes to engage in character development (empathy, grit, gratitude, leadership), which, science proves, leads not only to school and career success, but also to stronger, more engaged individuals and a more just world. Last year 200,000 groups (15,000 schools and over 4 million people) participated in 125 countries and all 50 states. The sixth annual will be Sept 27-28, 2019. Join us by signing up your school, school district, company, organization, congregation, or group of any size.

NEW THEME FOR 2019: What’s the relationship between character and technology? How does technology enhance our character development? How does turning off the screens enhance our character?


An enormous thank you to the amazing partners who help expand this initiative and cultivate character around the globe!

Coming soon: this year we’ll be distinguishing partners by what they provide (year-round curriculum or programs for schools; professional development for companies and organizations; resources for digital wellbeing; media resources; etc). Stay tuned!
