The Leadworthy Character Curriculum® is a campus specific curriculum designed to inspire and empower K-12 student to lead with heart. Thirty years ago, Leadworthy® (formerly Teen Leadership) was started as a way to help students learn the professionals kills, attitudes and behaviors that would help them become successful in life. Leadworthy continues to focus on the development and growth of students in schools across the country with an emphasis on integrity, character, trustworthiness, dignity, and respect. The lessons included are grade-level specific, progressive and systemic, and easy to use with minimal preparation. Focusing on a different character trait every month, teachers will be provided lessons that can be taught in a 30-minute class period once a week, also known as Mindset Mondays. In addition to weekly lessons, teachers will also have access to a monthly service-learning activity. The curriculum is structured in a way that provides opportunities for skill acquisition, practical application, and reflection.
