Character Counts

The Six Pillars of Character are the core ethical values of CHARACTER COUNTS!, identified by a nonpartisan, nonsectarian (secular) group of youth development experts in 1992 as “core ethical values that transcend cultural, religious and socioeconomic differences.

The six pillars are; Trustworthiness; Respect; Responsibility; Fairness; Caring; and Citizenship.

The chesed committee of the Hillel PTA works within the framework of Character Counts to develop acts of chesed for our students to perform and to experience, helping instill a positive school climate and a “culture of kindness”.
