Our Pre-K – 12 resources are remarkably easy to use and will enable you to build a positive culture — through character and relationships.How It Works Positive Relationships
Educators have more on their plates than ever. That’s why our lessons are designed to be low-prep for teachers, engaging and impactful for students — and take just 15-minutes a day.
160+ daily lessons are differentiated for grades Pre-K – 12 and last for 32 weeks of the school year. The common school-wide vocabulary, developed through consistency, naturally weaves throughout the entire school day.Resources Overview Alignment
“What does our country need and how can we help?” This was the question Mike and Jeff were asking themselves as they left active duty after a combined 52 months deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. The Positivity Project is their answer to that question.

Of This, I’m Positive
We carry the lessons we learn in school for a lifetime. Among the most important of those lessons are integrity, humility, bravery, perseverance, self-control, and teamwork. Of This, I’m Positive is a video series that highlights the importance of character strengths within and beyond the school walls.
P2 for Families
Connect Learning to Students’ Homes
P2 for Families is an easy and effective way for families to discuss the importance of character strengths and positive relationships. It is differentiated for grades Pre-K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Each character strength follows a 1-1-3 model: 1 quote, 1 video, and 3 questions to drive conversations around character at home.
Alignment with ELA: The Wild Robot's Character Strengths
As we move forward with The Positivity Project…We’re going to connect our read alouds, along with our independent reading, with the character strengths. In fact, I already created a response form that we can use while reading when we make a connection between a character in a book and a character strength.
- We are in the business of changing lives, and partnering with The Positivity Project has rekindled that fire.Jeremy Mitchell, Principal at Indian Hill Elementary School
- Mr. Jones and I used to just talk back and forth. But when he found out my top strength is humor, we started telling each other jokes every day. My relationship with him is so much stronger now because of The Positivity Project.6th grade student at Carroll Magnet Middle School
- We have changed the way we talk to children. We directly teach them about the value of themselves and how they affect the lives of those around them. This has made a huge impact for the students that we teach — and also for us as teachers.Sarah Angotti, 4th Grade Teacher at Morgan Road Elementary School
- We have been inspired with what we have seen in our school community since implementing The Positivity Project. We know that what we are teaching and discussing in our classrooms will forever change the way our students understand, look at, and treat others.Brett Woodcock, Principal at Morgan Road Elementary School
- We must deliberately and consistently teach our children about character. The P2 has transformed the culture of our building and our community in Homewood.Dr. Virginia Hill, Principal at Lincoln STEAM Elementary School
- I believe that using P2 has enhanced relationships between students in my class. They are more interested in solving conflicts with each other, forgiving each other and learning to respect each other. I have literally no behavioral issues in my class and I think it’s largely due to my consistent use of P2. Students love spending time each day learning about the 24 character strengths.Jessa Salibrici, 5th Grade Teacher at J.T. Roberts, Syracuse City Schools
- Although The Positivity Project is designed for easy and quick implementation, its presence is felt in my classroom throughout the entire day. The 24 character strengths vocabulary is now part of my students everyday conversations – and I see it in their writing as well.Todd Kaiser, 5th Grade Teacher, A.A. Kingston Middle School
