Celebrating Good Character 

Celebrate character with us! During the month of October we focus on bringing awareness to various causes as well as celebrate Character Counts! Week. During CCW2017 we highlight values that we all share called The Six Pillars of Character. The six pillars are; Trustworthiness; Respect; Responsibility; Fairness; Caring; and Citizenship. Each Pillar is consistently identified with a color: Trustworthiness – Blue, Respect – Gold/Yellow, Responsibility – Green, Fairness – Orange, Caring – Red, Citizenship – Purple. YOU can join the celebration by demonstrating these values at home, work and in your communities and by sharing them with others. So c’mon…spread good character all around! #CCWeek2017 #MaximizingCharacter #votd #WhatsGood #CultivatingCharacterMXC #character4life #nonprofit #youth #kids #groups #school #education #community #service #causes #charactereducation

We’re BACK!!

It’s been a long time since we posted here but we’re back! Well, we never really left, but things just got very busy with Maximizing Character…Yay! Since we left off in 2014, we’ve been busy cultivating character in our local community. We’ve facilitated after-school character development programs in the school system for two years, had three annual youth fashion shows, and for the first time, facilitated a life skills course during summer camp at the College of William and Mary! Can you say…Go Maximizing Character?! In 2016 we officially became a non-profit youth organization, a huge achievement for us, and we are not slowing down! We are looking forward to ending 2017 on a positive note and entering 2018 with exciting new initiatives for youth and families in an effort to cultivate character in every arena–home, schools, our local community and around the globe.

Speaking of around the globe, last month Maximizing Character participated in its 4th International Character Day! This year we decided to take the advice of the founders/organizers, Let it Ripple, and do a social media campaign featuring the hashtag,  Cultivating Character. This month we are spreading awareness about bullying prevention, breast cancer, domestic violence, juvenile justice and of course, the importance of good character during Character Counts! Week.

We hope that you will join us on this journey to do What’s Good by Maximizing Character! Until next time…Here’s to Character!
