CHARACTER COUNTS! (the Center for Youth Ethics) is administered by Josephson Institute of Ethics and is a 501c3 non-profit organization founded in 1987. It is the most widely implemented approach to character education, reaching millions of youth. It is not a curriculum – but a framework of six core values called The Six Pillars of Character: trustworthiness; respect; responsibility; fairness; caring and citizenship. Test your character by taking our quick survey.Murder In The First 2014
