Character Playbook showed up big in Denver on Saturday June 3rd. The Broncos Quentin Gause led a panel of students in an exploration of what character means to them in their everyday life. The panel was held at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium was attended by local students and their families, as well as, representatives from the Mile High United Way and Verizon. The event served as a proof point of Character Playbook building the voice and skills of students in schools to ensure that they are safe and tolerant places where everyone is welcome. In addition to the student panel students led round table discussions that worked through challenging scenarios. Students discussed solutions for issues in both their schools and communities. The group ended their day of character by volunteering with the Broncos organization at the Rocky Mountain Food Bank. Students worked to pack and prepare shipments of meals that will be distributed to the areas of need throughout Denver.
At the conclusion of Saturday’s events participants and families alike walked away with proof that student advocates are answering the bell in Denver. With a great year one in the books the expectations for Character Playbook in year two are a mile high!
