Character…the essential soft skills employers are looking for in the workforce.
Character education is all about raising the awareness of and strengthening core ethical values and moral character traits that positively impact individuals and communities. Learning key terms and practicing positive character traits in real life allows youth and adults, alike, the opportunity to grow and thrive in their relationships with others at home, school, work and the community.
character education emPowers® is a program of the (e2) education emPowers® initiative, a region wide effort of Heartland Foundation and its Healthy Communities Regional Investor Partners convening business, education, government, healthcare, and other citizens who aspire to build collaborative and innovative strategies to advance educational attainment and lifelong learning.
