Are You Trying to Make a Difference In a Teen's Life?


Are you caring for their needs but not really giving them a life?

Do you work with teens that have little or no foundation for success?

Are you looking for a positive, strengths-based tool to engage and transform their character?



Character Challenge (C2) is an evidence-based curriculum illustrated with clips from popular movies that teens love and that changes hearts, minds, and lives.

Our culture is filled with unparented children becoming hapless adults.  They don’t have the heart, training, or skills to be happy or successful in life.  You know the problem.  You see this every day in your work.  So how do we help them?

Our Character Becomes Our Destiny



An adolescent judge challenged us to develop a character education program that would change lives.  Well, we love a challenge!  Four years, hundreds of thousands of dollars, and lots of research were invested.  The result is:

C2:  Character Challenge  

Your teens will love this stuff!  Each session has 25 minutes of movie clips from current movies as part of the 75-90 minute session.  Imagine "Lord of the Rings" illustrating discernment, "Pirates of the Caribbean" for integrity, and forgiveness being taught by "Spiderman 3".  That’s what this material is about:  Timeless truths taught with timely images.

How C2 is Changing Lives



     






C2 is designed for the most challenging teens: those “at risk” of dropping out or flunking out, drug users, bullies, and the violent.

Yes, they can be helped. C2 graduates tend to stay in school, do their homework, stop using drugs, stop violent behavior, and change friends. C2 gives them the foundation for life they are not getting at home.

Traditionally, the students in this age group who lack character don’t respond well to character education. It seems to remind them of their failure and it’s not “cool.” C2 is based on Positive Psychology and focuses on teens' strengths. This builds their own motivation.
