The American Character Program creates an exciting experience for students to learn lessons in civic responsibility, character building, financial literacy, career development, community engagement and the Great American story that helps them discover and define their role in America’s future.

As the name suggests, this resource teaches the history behind ten pivotal American characters such as Harriet Tubman, Benjamin Franklin and Abraham Lincoln while highlighting the motivating character traits which distinguishes these individuals as extraordinarily significant heroes in the American experience.

This program, in conjunction with the #GoodCharacters service learning project, is compatible with any American history, civics or government class. The program concludes with a student-led “Expo” where they share their ideas and execution of service projects with peers, parents and press.

Through defining characters from our nation’s past, students will develop their own strong character for America’s future.
