On September 22, 2016, join hundreds of thousands of people around the globe for the third annual Character Day — a free day and global initiative where universities, school districts, companies, families, congregations, and organizations of all sizes screen films on the science of character development from different perspectives, dive into free printed discussion materials catered to different ages, and  join an online global conversation around the importance of developing character strengths (resilience, grit, empathy, courage, kindness)–all rooted in evidence-based research. Character Day is one day. The resources are available year-round.
