Certificated Student Development Workshops (SDW) – Training Packages

The most critical component of an effective CHARACTER COUNTS!® student development initiative is our certificated comprehensive three-day workshop in our small group setting with a expert master trainer providing hands-on learning. Participants completing this course will be certified as CHARACTER COUNTS!® Champions, authorized to conduct internal in-service training and administer school or organization-wide CHARACTER COUNTS!® implementations.

Who Should Attend: Certificated Student Development Workshops are designed to provide teachers, school administrators, counselors, police resource officers, afterschool programs, juvenile facilities, mental health organizations, businesses, colleges or universities, and other youth and people serving organizations the tools to establish a positive school climate and instill critical academic, social and emotional skills, as well as core character traits.
While we’ve changed the lives of millions of students, CHARACTER COUNTS!® is also ideal for community leaders, agencies and organizations dedicated to improving society and/or improving ethical decision making from within.
Our values-based system provides measurable improvement in behavior and decision-making and focuses on the key principles of The Six Pillars of Character.™ Through proper implementation, our program helps instill ethical leadership amongst staff, community members and leadership.

Participants will learn techniques for integrating values into their existing lives and organizations. We’ve served organizations ranging from city departments to the U.S. Olympic athletes!
