The Character component is conducted using the Social Responsibility Training (SRT®) curricula from Character Development Systems, Inc. This material is designed to reduce specific risk factors that are problematic aspects of character as identified through scientific research, and to enhance pro-social support, skills and motivation. The systematic, step-by-step approach of SRT® helps alter how students think, make judgments and decisions about right and wrong, and promotes actions and behaviors focused on creating positive relationships. Character classes are facilitated by student coaches who are trained in the SRT curricula. The student coaches have been High School and College students, as well as community volunteers.
