Our mission is to empower America’s youth to build positive relationships and become their best selves.
Why relationships? Because they are the cornerstone of health, happiness, and resilience…and (according to experts) many jobs of the future. That is why we developed a strategy that schools use to inspire positive relationships (student-to-student and student-to-teacher) and cultivate school-wide #PositivityInAction.
The research is clear. Our ability to build positive relationships is under assault.

Only by consistently teaching our youth about the character strengths that everyone possesses, will they see people based on the content of their character.
This ability will enhance their self-awareness and self-confidence, understanding and appreciation of others, and interpersonal relationships – which will positively influence our youth (individually and collectively) across their lifespans.
