Promising Practices in Character Development Announced

2020 Promising Practices in Character Development Announced

 
Character.org has certified​ ​246 ​Promising Practices in schools and organizations across the country that foster character development in our children and teens.

 

"We are extremely proud to recognize the schools and organizations that have developed and implemented a Promising Practice” said Dr. Arthur Schwartz, President of Character.org. “Each of these programs and initiatives have demonstrated significant impact and strongly align with the principles that help schools and organizations cultivate a culture of character.”

 

This year’s character development practices and initiatives included peer mentoring, service-learning, and conflict resolution approaches. Many of the Promising Practices also involve parents and the local community. ​See the full list of our 2020 Promising Practices​.

 

Character.org will honor each 2020 Promising Practice recipient (schools and organizations) at its National Forum in Washington, D.C., to be held March 3-5, 2021.
