Helping Middle and High School Students Develop Strong Character
Integrity, emotional security, self-discipline, determination, and initiative are just some of the necessary skills students need to succeed both in and out of school. Unfortunately, many students aren’t developing them today. What if there was a straightforward way to teach students integrity and other essential character education skills? That’s why we designed Habitudes for Building Character: The Art of Self-Leadership to be used as a character education program.

The work of Tim Elmore, and the Growing Leaders team is having a very profound impact on our school. We use the Habitudes curriculum on a regular basis, and the images have already gained a foothold as an integral part of our work with our students.
We are seeing students from all demographics, engage in the Habitudes lessons, and having conversations on how to prepare for their life ahead of them.
Habitudes is the most excellent program for first year students and beyond. It is a program that encourages and teaches deeper thinking and dialogue.
I encourage schools, and school districts to partner with Growing Leaders to help both educators and students to enhance their leadership skills. They have inspired our teacher-leaders, applying the Habitudes to R. everyday classroom situation's.
As a university dean, I believe anyone who cares about the future of this generation should digest the materials from Tim Elmore and growing leaders. He understands what students need, and how to deliver it in a relevant fashion.
One of the biggest things that habitudes has helped with is preparing our students to be a career and college ready upon graduation. Habitude helped each student become a better person and have a big picture perspective
Habitudes has it all. It has the implementation of why were doing this and the why behind 'you should have integrity'. We have found something that the kids are hooked on immediately.
Thank you so much for your investment at Virginia Tech. We appreciate your tremendous work with our student athletes, coaches, staff, and faculty. Simply put you have helped us grow and become better as a department.
No one teaches leadership better than Tim Elmore. The Habitudes are an outstanding way to teach and learn leadership. I recommend Tim as a teacher and a mentor, and I recommend Habitudes to anyone.
