The Positivity Project

Positivity Project

What is the Positivity Project?  logo

The Positivity Project seeks to "empower America's youth to build positive relationships and become their best selves." 

Why relationships? Because they are the cornerstone of health, happiness, and resilience…and (according to experts) many jobs of the future. The Positivity Project developed a strategy that schools use to inspire positive relationships (student-to-student and student-to-teacher) and cultivate a school-wide #PositivityInAction.


P2 for Families

Make sure to all sign up for P2 Resources for Families. You’ll find 1 quote, 1 video, and 3 questions to help you and your children discuss The Positivity Project’s character strength of the week.


Students learn about 3-4 new character strengths per month.  Families are encouraged to use the Character Cards to gain a better understanding of each strength, along with the definitions and language being used at school to teach their child about the strength.
