YOUTH

K-12 Assemblies, Trainings and Curriculum

Youth Character and Leadership programs are critically important and should be introduced at the earliest educational levels possible in order to build self confident and compassionate campus and community influencers.  We are witnessing the hopelessness of our current younger ‘lost’ generations playing out through their actions due to a lack of life direction, little sense of purpose and a disconnect from their communities.  Character University elementary, middle and high school programs bring together some of the most powerful youth speakers, assemblies, curriculum and experiences to build youth leaders of incredible character.  The CU Youth team of presenters have shared messages in front of more than 10 million elementary thru high school students over the past decade.  Search the menu of speakers and programs below to determine which speaker(s) and message(s) will be the best fit for your current and future campus goals.

I have an extreme lack of confidence and it usually holds me back from doing things mostly because I'm afraid of what people think of me. The prisoner presentation helped me realize I have the key to making my life the way I want it to be and that it's better to do something and have consequences, good or bad, than to not do something and live with not knowing what could have come out of it. Thank you, Character University!

Mikayla, 10th Grade, Hollidaysburg Senior HS, PA

Character University was life changing! My whole life I have been "programmed" by others what to think, believe and do with my life and I did not even realize it until I heard the doctor speak. I look forward to making sure I figure out who I am and be true to myself, not just let other people make me who they are. We should not be afraid to develop ourselves and our own identity. I will never forget what the doctor taught me.

Meg, HS Junior, Aquinas Institute, Rochester, NY

My favorite Character University skit was the prisoner. He showed us what letting others tell you what you can and cannot do does to a person. I now believe in myself and will not doubt my own abilities. Doubt and "can't" builds walls that you can't easily tear down. You must believe in yourself and act accordingly. Thanks for giving me the key to be free!

Kyle, HS Sophomore, Haddam-Killingworth, CT

I really really loved every single character you did for us but my favorite character was the hockey player. The part about being your own goalie keeping you from scoring goals hit home for me because I, most of the time, am my own worst enemy. I let fear of failure and fear of what others will think of me get in the way of what I really want to do. The Character University presentations really hit me and they changed me and I can't thank you enough.

Tierra Conyers, Student, Omaha Benson HS Magnet

I absolutely loved the doctor. Thinking about how my ideas and beliefs aren't necessarily my own is something I've contemplated before but never in the capacity that was shared. It really opened my eyes to what it means to live in the 21st century and make my own decisions. So many of the controversial issues in our society could be discussed and resolved if more people took on this way of thinking. The doctor really opened my eyes to the person I want to be versus the person I thought I had to be.
