Workshop Description

A character-building workshop is a type of workshop that focuses on developing positive character traits in individuals. These workshops are designed to help people learn how to be more empathetic, compassionate, and understanding towards others. They can also help individuals develop a stronger sense of self-awareness and self-confidence. Workshops like these are often used in schools, businesses, and other organizations to help people build better relationships with others and become more effective leaders.

 

This Workshop is presented and facilitated by the Travis Manion Foundation (TMF).

 

WHAT IS CHARACTER DOES MATTER?

The hallmark program of TMF, Character Does Matter (CDM), (powered by UA Freedom) is a youth mentorship program led by veterans and families of the fallen volunteers that helps develop character and leadership skills in young adults. Grounded in the evidence-based field of Positive Psychology, CDM uses presentations, activity-based courses, group discussions and small group mentoring to inspire youth to lead with character in and outside of the classroom.

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF YOUTH MENTORSHIP

With one in three youth reporting, they do not have a positive mentor in their life, it’s critical to create opportunities where they can learn the value of character from others. Due to their personal experiences and inherent ability to lead, veterans and families of the fallen are poised to fill that role. Our youth mentoring program has been shown to positively impact behaviors and attitudes among school-aged youth in areas including self-reflection, confidence, goal setting, leadership, service and more.
