Character First

Permission requested to use information from The Character First!® Education website

Today crime, juvenile delinquency, broken families, and overcrowded prisons overshadow many nation's productivity, ingenuity, and prosperity. The reason for this decline is the lack of individual character. Click to learn more about Character Cities

United Caribbean Trust would like to see Character Islands springing up all over the Caribbean. We believe it must start with the children.

Education

Integrate Character Into Learning and Life

America's schoolmaster, Noah Webster, said, "To exterminate our vices is more important to the character and happiness of our citizens than any other improvements in our system of education."

Teddy Roosevelt also realized the crucial need for character education: "to educate a person in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society." School violence serves as a reminder of what happens when children and young adults do not receive a good moral foundation. However, a school-wide focus upon character development has successfully reduced improper behavior and instilled universal principles essential to effective learning and student success.

Find the Best Character Program for Your School

A community-wide character program should provide tools to saturate a whole community, from the classroom to the workplace. This approach reinforces parental involvement and ensures character education in the classroom harmonizes with character education in the family. A character education program should contain the following elements:

  • clearly defined and illustrated character qualities,
  • an emphasis upon personal responsibility and practical commitments,
  • examples of each character quality being used in real-life situations,
  • a structure that promotes character as something that is "caught" as well as taught (e.g., through mentorship), and
  • integrated character training in public and private schools at every level.

Reinforce Character in the Family:

Character in schools strengthens the entire community and it's families by…

  • facilitating a culture of character that will encourage children and young adults to make right decisions,
  • training children in character from a young age, and
  • encouraging parents to deepen character training in the home with the take-home resources provided.

GETTING STARTED

Education Training

For a community-wide character initiative to succeed, it must reach into the schools and provide students with positive motivation.


The Character First! Education program and curriculum enables school staff and students to enhance the effectiveness of education, help students understand the role of character in their success, and provide resources and tools for school administrators and teachers to use as they develop a culture of good character in their institutions.

Across the nation and around the world, teachers, parents, and principals have reported the difference character is making in the lives of their students.

  • Increased student cooperation
  • Improved school safety
  • Reduced disciplinary problems
  • Enhanced learning environment
  • Increased academic achievement
  • Greater staff unity
  • Improved family harmony
Share the vision for character education with the entire faculty through faculty in-service training. This training equips your staff to begin and maintain a character emphasis.

Involve the community in your character emphasis. Volunteer training gives practical ways for high school mentors and others in the community to encourage character in elementary-age students.

United Caribbean Trust is excited about this new dynamic character training programme and we are seeking God's face for clarity on how we can be of assistance in extending this programme into the schools and Community Centres throughout Barbados and eventually the Caribbean. May God's will be done throughout the Caribbean.

AFRICA APPEAL

"I will give you my message in the form of a vision.

Write it clearly enough to be read at a glance. At the time I have decided, my words will come true."

Habakkuk 2: 2-3

The 10/40 Window confronts us with several important considerations:

first, the historical and biblical significance;
second, the least evangelized countries with 6,000 unreached people groups;
third, the large number of poor and diseased;
fourth, the least evangelized mega-cities;
sixth, the dominance of three religions;
seventh, the strongholds of Satan within ‘The 10/40 Window’.

"The poor are the lost, and the lost are the poor."


Missions is the heartbeat of God

It is our urgent call to provide sponsorship for not only the orphans but also to support and empower the body of Christ and send them out for the Great Commission.

This will involve the sponsorship of African pastors being trained at the Assemblies of God School of Theology in Malawi.

"So we follow the chart of God’s Word, propelled by the wind of the Spirit, and stay the course in our worldwide mission." - L. John Bueno -

Executive Director Assemblies of God World Missions

GospelFest

Barbados Gospelfest was established in 1993 by the Barbados Tourist Board (BTB). The festival was the brainchild of the then Minister of Tourism Wes Hall, now Rev. Wes Hall. In 1995 the responsibility for the production of the festival was passed on to the Gospelfest Organising Committee made up of persons from the Christian community, chaired by Barbadian event manager Adrian Agard.
