All Stars Character Education
All Stars Character Education is an innovative science-based prevention program that promotes prosocial behavior and attitudes with 4th or 5th graders. When done as intended, the effects on students can be profound.
All Stars Character Education targets behaviors that are precursors to the development of risky behaviors, such as substance use, fighting and early sexual activity.

The program includes 15 highly engaging and hands-on activities, that range from 20-40 minutes in length, along with pre-printed parent memos for each activity, that informs parents what the goal of the activity was and ideas on how they can reinforce it at home with their child.
