4-H Character Counts! Train the Trainer

Virginia Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Youth Development program has developed a proactive plan utilizing the CHARACTER COUNTS!sm (CC!) framework to create awareness and build skills for adults to develop character in young people.

Our efforts are successful. More than 50 school systems in the Commonwealth have participated in 4-H/CC! Training programs and have adopted CC! as their character development model. In addition, a two year study of Virginia elementary teachers documents that the program has been successful in increasing behaviors among students that reflect positive character development.

You are invited to join with us and over 400 other organizations of the nationwide CHARACTER COUNTS!sm Coalition, as we teach youth and adults how to follow the Six Pillars of Character.trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.

When: Oct. 15-17

Where: Embassy Suites Richmond, 2925 Emerywood Parkway, Richmond, VA
