CHARACTER COUNTS! offers training and materials to help you teach basic values (the Six Pillars of Character) to young people. Our approach transcends politics, religion and cultural differences, and our program is widely used in both public and private schools.

Our flexible framework lets you shape your character-education initiative to your needs. It isn’t a curriculum, an add-on or a quick-fix fad. It's a way to weave values like honesty, respect and fairness into the culture of your school or organization.
