Mentor Training - Character Does Matter - Travis Manion

  • Baker Ripley, Ripley House 4410 Navigation Boulevard Houston, TX, 77011 United States (map)

TMF’s Character Does Matter Program, presented by Johnson & Johnson, engages veterans and survivors to inspire young adults to live with character, develops their leadership skills, and activates them to serve their communities in honor of fallen heroes.

During this training, we will cover the ins and outs of the TMF organization – our mission, vision, and values. We will also discuss what character means and how you can bring it to life in your community.

Additionally, you'll receive tools and training to help you engage with youth, and build and foster character in them.

By the end, you will have everything you need to build presentations and run activities on your own.

Character Does Matter (CDM), is our cornerstone program in which TMF trains and supports veterans and families of the fallen to bring a strengths-based character curriculum into schools and youth groups. The curriculum teaches good character, using stories from veterans' lives, relatable examples to students and about fallen heroes like LT Travis Manion.
