Schools that teach character education report higher academic performance, improved attendance, reduced violence, fewer disciplinary issues, reduction in substance abuse, and less vandalism. That’s why United Way is teaming up with the National Football League and EVERFI to make Character Playbook available at no cost to any US middle or high school interested in implementation.
Character Playbook, now in its third year, is the latest innovation in the 45-year partnership between the NFL and United Way. This all digital, in-school program teaches students how to build healthy relationships, make good decisions and stand up when they see questionable activity. To date, more than 350,000 students in nearly 3,700 schools have used the digital program as a tool for personal development and success.
