Character Strengths and Virtues

Who is this person starting out?

What does she or he want to achieve?

Student character programs have often stressed the moral "should" instead of the ethical "could". Student Pathways, supported by Seligman and Peterson's classification: Character Strengths and Virtues starts by initiating young people into the choosing who they want to be. Systems of goal setting, conversation and reflection support this lifelong journey.

Programs start for students 11 years of age and older.
