CHARACTER COUNTS - New to HOOPZONE this summer

charactercountsbig

OUR CHARACTER DOES COUNT!

Which is why HOOPZONE Basketball will be
incorporating this program into our camps!

CHARACTER COUNTS! improves the lives of the adults who teach it — and the communities that embrace it. CHARACTER COUNTS! gives kids a framework for ethical living. Simply put, we help kids make better choices to make everyone’s life better.

CHARACTER COUNTS! is two things: an educational framework for teaching universal values and a national coalition of organizations that support each other. The result is a culture change in your school or youth-service program.
