Character Matters.

 

It’s what motivates a person to be a force for good.

Character Academy guides young adults through important inner work to help them become people of character and positive changemakers in the world. Participants will go through a series of workshops on topics such as Adaptability, Compassion and Purpose designed to equip them with the timeless values needed to navigate the road ahead — whatever their chosen path.
Key Learning Objectives


PERSONAL GROWTH


Change starts within. Guided by Youth Frontiers staff and outside experts, participants utilize tools like CliftonStrengths and the Enneagram to identify their gifts and engage with their growth opportunities.

 


POSITIVE CHANGE


People of character use their gifts to meet the world’s needs. Participants apply what they learn during the Character Academy workshops by giving back to their community through meaningful volunteerism.
