George Washington Carver
- Lesson 35 | Integrity
Character is an internal energy that inspires us to act, restrains us from acting, and gives us the wisdom or moral compass to know when each action is appropriate. Everything we do in life is driven by our character. When character is acquired and held internally, it leads to a virtuous life, lived for a Greater Purpose.
THERE’S SOMETHING BIGGER THAN ME
Greater Purpose is a cause or passion we love deeply,
for which we would relinquish our own self-interest. It is a context
bigger than ourselves. The Character Formation Project
will help you identify your Greater Purpose and grow
character in that context. Our Greater Purpose
gives meaning to everything we do.
Built to Last
Many character programs seek to modify behavior. We set out to learn how character is formed and where it is held, so we could help shape character that lasts beyond a school day or a particular setting. The answers to these questions led us to the development of our unique process for forming internally driven, lasting character. Our training programs teach the process, so adults, students, families and entire organizations can journey together toward the formation of lasting character.
Our team has developed hundreds of vivid narratives, lesson plans and facilitator guides.
