Character Lab is a nonprofit on a mission to develop, disseminate, and support research-based approaches to character that enable kids to learn and flourish. We are a small team of researchers, designers, and educators who are working to do three things:
Discover the ideas and strategies that build character.
We co-design and fund research about character with a K–12 classroom in mind, and directly connect researchers with those who work in schools.
Translate those good ideas to useful products.
Using research results, we produce and curate practical tools for teachers and families.
Do everything we can to ensure that people who work with students do what the research says is best.
We partner with researchers to scale and replicate the best ideas for schools and homes.
