  • Mission:
  • The mission of Characters of Character is to provide our award winning character education program to schools, communities and families to help teach children vital core values. There are nine animal traits, Behavior Bear, Do'er Duck, (perseverance) Healthy Hippo, Manners Monkey, Friendship Frog, Respectful Rabbit, Responsible Rabbit, Self-esteem Elephant and Warm-hearted Walrus. These characters are a strong foundation to teach children about good character.

    We offer a complete curriculum for each character as well as children's books, positive reinforcements, posters, bookmarks, visuals, character visits and a life time of learning about character.

  • History:
  • In 2005 Characters of Character piloted their program and the characters in a public school in Illinois. Here it won a National Promising Practice Award. In 2007 a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization was formed. Today, we work endlessly sharing our characters. We've now been able to share the characters in costume and the childrn, adults and communities have embraced them with open arms.

    We have been on RADO Disney, volunteered at Lisle Eyes To The Skies, Healthy Kids Day, Chicagoland Kids Expo and other community events and magazines.
