Character Counts Resource Material
Someone with good character is respectable, someone to look up to and admire. They understand the difference between right and wrong and always try to do what is right, regardless of the cost.
Whether they are being watched by others or simply by themselves, their behavior and actions don’t change. They strive to set an excellent example for everyone and improve their world.
People of good moral character live according to the six pillars of character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and good citizenship. To learn more, see our Character Counts Magic Program.
