Character Academy
Young Adults (ages 16-24+)

 

A cohort-style experience that guides athletes and other young leaders through personal development work to help them become people of character and positive changemakers. We can customize an experience that best fits your team by offering workshops individually or as a series.
Add Character Academy to your playbook
and equip your team with the character-based skills they need to thrive
— on game day and every day.
Who is this for?

Late high school or college students who are ready to engage in a dynamic cohort experience that will challenge, grow and inspire them to live with greater character. Great for emerging leaders such as team captains or for small to mid-sized sports teams to experience together.

IN-PERSON OR VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS

COMPASSION


Take Care, Give Care


 

Participants will learn about the importance of self-care and how to cultivate greater compassion, a critical trait for navigating life’s challenges with resilience.

CONFIDENCE


Be Seen — in Service of Others


 

We all matter, and our unique voices matter. In this session, participants learn tools to combat nerves, summon a sense of power, and speak up at school, work and beyond.

GRATITUDE


Express Gratitude, Increase Resilience


 

Participants learn strategies for cultivating a personal gratitude practice, which can help them bolster resilience to stress and flourish at school, at work and in life.

PERSPECTIVE


Busyness and the Big Picture


 

When we focus on life’s busyness, we risk losing sight of the bigger picture. In this session, participants “zoom out” to gain perspective on their to-dos and discover how they connect to what’s important.

PRESENCE


Putting People First


 

In this session, participants explore what it means to be fully present to those around them and how our presence can communicate the message “you matter.”

PURPOSE


Using Gifts for Good


 

Purpose gives life meaning. Participants will experience an inspirational lesson that helps them identify their personal gifts and talents in order to serve the world’s greatest needs.
