All Stars Character Education

All Stars Character Education is an innovative science-based prevention program that promotes prosocial behavior and attitudes. 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 precursor behaviors include lying, stealing, cheating and bullying. Research shows the earlier one or more of these precursor behaviors begin the higher the risk for substance use, fighting and early sexual activity.

The focus of All Stars Character Education is on strengthening students’ motivation to avoid the precursor behaviors by:

  • Establishing positive norms
  • Promoting bonding to school or the group
  • Building six positive character qualities, including being caring, forgiving, helpful, honest, respectful and responsible
  • Promoting positive parental attentiveness

The program includes:

  • 15 highly engaging activities that range from 20-40 minutes in length
  • Take home activities to be completed with parents
