2023 Promising Practices Recipients

Character.org is honored to announce our 2023 Promising Practices. We celebrate the creative approaches these schools and organizations have put in place to help children and teens understand, care about and consistently practice the core values that will enable them to flourish in school, in relationships, in the workplace and as citizens. Each of these school or organization-based initiatives is a significant example of effective character development and aligned with one or more of our 11 Principles framework.

Congratulations to all 177 of our 2023 Promising Practices schools and organizations for their achievement.
