About Character Counts!
is a coalition of schools, communities and non-profit organizations that work together to promote character education in young people. The coalition seeks to fortify the lives of America’s youth by teaching the Six Pillars of Character. These ethical values include trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. The City of Laguna Niguel actively supports Character Counts through programs offered in the Parks & Recreation Department and Police Services. The program is also supported by the Capistrano Unified School District in local schools.
