Mission Statement

Give Teens a Life

Description

When the judge asked for a character training curriculum, we checked out the others on the market. Our 'panel of experts' [actual at-risk teens] judged them as "lame" [Translation: Uninteresting, uninspiring, and not 'cool']. Our opinion was that they were designed for the kids who needed them least: The kids who already had high levels of character strength.

We believed that if we designed the training to be highly interesting, interactive, and challenging, it would appeal not only to at-risk teens but to all teens. Our pilot groups proved this accurate. Our high-functioning adolescents [honor roll students] reported similar interest in and transformation from their experience with C2.
