Carolina Launch + Training Event Recap
United Way of Central Carolinas and the Carolina Panthers launched Character Playbook in the Charlotte, NC region on August 18, 2016, with a professional development session for school teachers, counselors, and administrators at Bank of America Stadium. Staff from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and other school districts were provided with an overview of Character Playbook, training on registering and implementing the course, and then given a private tour of the home of the Carolina Panthers.
Both the Carolina Panthers and United Way of Central Carolinas are thrilled to bring this program to students in the Charlotte region, and know how important the middle school years are for developing the academic skills that enable long-term success. Through this recent partnership, the United Way of Central Carolinas and the Carolina Panthers have reached nearly 3,000 students since launching Character Playbook!
