The module focuses on developing character, personality, and decision making which will provide youth the foundation needed to be successful. According to Victor Battisstich, research suggests that comprehensive high quality character education, is not only effective at promoting the development of good character, but it is a promising approach to enhance positive youth development. In addition, Battistich states there is increasing evidence that character education programs focused on the broader goal of promoting the overall positive development of youth are at least as effective as more specific programs aimed at preventing particular behavior. This module will also include activities and literature focused on Respect, Trustworthiness, and Responsibility.
