The Positivity Project is dedicated to helping America’s youth build stronger relationships by recognizing the character strengths in themselves and others. The premise is simple, but the results will be profound. Together, we will help create stronger citizens and leaders who will enhance our communities and country by internalizing the belief that “Other People Matter.”
Positive psychology’s 24 character strengths serve as the foundation of The Positivity Project’s approach. These strengths can be found across cultures, physical borders and time. We are purposefully and explicitly teaching these key terms to provide our students with a common language focused on positive character. Character is more than just behavior – it’s what is inside all of us. Research shows that teaching children about their own positive character, rather than just positive behaviors, has an enduring prosocial impact.
