Programs & Resources
Since 1993, our character-inspired programs and resources have inspired, recognized,
and celebrated thousands of people who are champions for character.
Schools of Character
We recognize schools and districts that implement the rigorous standards of our 11 Principles Framework for Schools.
Each year we celebrate creative and innovative programs and approaches that 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 the workplace, and as citizens.
Ethics & Integrity Initiative
Champions for Character Awards
Character.org recognizes and celebrates people and organizations we proudly call “Champions for Character.” We invite you to nominate an individual or organization within one or all of these five areas: Parents & Families; Sports Programs; After-School Programs; International and Workplace.
CSED National Guidelines
We published the National Guidelines for Character and Social-Emotional Development (CSED) to fuse together character and social-emotional development.
Every month Dr. Arthur Schwartz, president of Character.org, speaks with a leader from an organization that inspires people of all ages to practice and model the ethical core values that shape our hearts, minds, and choices.
