When students feel empowered and that they have a voice, it provides leadership opportunities; creates a positive school community; and can ultimately transform your school environment.
Learn activities and strategies that can be immediately implemented at your school to identify concepts that are working and areas of improvement. Explore ideas to challenge and stretch your students to grow their sense of competence. Leave with a plan to ensure you are being intentional about creating a school community in which all students have a voice, belong and feel like they matter.
Every day, CharacterPlus® works with educators using evidence-based processes to build character, social and emotional skills in PreK-12 students. CharacterPlus® now works with university-level athletic teams using those same processes with great success.
Since CharacterPlus® member districts across comparable demographics achieve higher ACT scores and MPI scores than non-member districts, we know how this success with teachers and students in classrooms can be applied to coaches and athletes on fields, courts, courses, and tracks.
