Which ages groups can participate?
Character Development is not limited to particular age groups. There are however, traditional, development programs which follow a standard model. Our most popular model of CD is a 6 week service learning course. During the 1 hour and 30 min enrichment class, students learn about a key character trait, provide service to a local nonprofit organization and serve others. Students reflect in their "Service Journal" what they have accomplished.
