Outside of School

Quality programming for young people outside of school is a powerful tool for developing good character.

Using the Six Pillars of Character, lessons can be learned through role play, activities, stories, and more.  Outside of the school, the supporting of a child’s social/emotional growth and development is extremely important.

Our professional staff will provide the tools to plan for a safe and healthy learning and play environment which supports children’s social and emotional development using the CHARACTER COUNTS! framework and the Six Pillars of Character.

Character Builder’s Toolbox
Our one-day workshop teaches experiential strategies designed to enrich learning through play.  You’ll learn how to be a character builder and how to coach your staff to do the same.

All participants receive a Toolbox Guide filled with hundreds of activities that bring CHARACTER COUNTS!, and the Six Pillars of Character  to life in your youth out-of-school/childcare program.

This fun and interactive workshop explores:

  • CHARACTER COUNTS! - the most widely used character education tool in Iowa
  • Stages of team development
  • Connecting activities to 21st Century Skills
  • Being a role model of great character
  • Ways to reflect for deeper meaning to the play experience
  • How to incentivize, reinforce and measure good character
