The growing importance of CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT

Date posted: 16 Jun 2016

Increasingly parents and teachers are recognising the urgency of developing young people's character strengths especially since research is showing the impacts are at least as important to individuals' happiness, wellbeing and future life chances as it is to their academic achievements.

"Teaching kids to count is fine, but teaching them WHAT COUNTS, is best." ~ Bob Talbert, US columnist

Learning about values is empowering. Good values lead to good choices.  Well-being is enhanced by well-chosen values.

We have proven VALUES EDUCATION teaching materials that promote the holistic development of children and young people but we need your help to make them available to cash-strapped schools.

For every £100 you donate, we can supply a struggling primary school with a copy of EDUCATION IN HUMAN VALUES - an exciting programme transforming the emotional, social and academic attainment of children so that they can truly flourish and maximise their potential.

PLEASE HELP US TO PREPARE CHILDREN WELL FOR LIFE NOW AND AS THEY MATURE.
