The Positivity Project

The vision of the Positivity Project is to create citizens and leaders who will enhance our communities and country by internalizing the belief that “Other People Matter.”

The Positivity Project (P2) is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering students to build strong relationships and to understand, appreciate, and exemplify character strengths in us all.  The movement is based in the tenets of Positive Psychology.

Every one to two weeks, our students learn about a new character strength. By leveraging Positivity Project resources, teachers use approximately 10-15 minutes per day to lead a discussion about that week’s strength. Teachers are equipped with resources but encouraged to tailor daily character education to their students’ unique needs.

Teachers are given resources and training on the 24 character strengths.
