Character Day

At the PACE Foundation, part of our mission is to empower teenagers to make good decisions. We know that character education plays a significant role in helping people of all ages in their decision making and this is why we are excited to bring the Character Day movement to the Bahamas!

The PACE Foundation, Bahamas AIDS Foundation & Lyford Cay Foundations FOCUS programme, have partnered to host Character Day in The Bahamas with funding from the Templeton World Charity Foundation, Inc.

We invite schools, business, churches, civic groups, non-profit organizations, families and individuals to join us during the month of October. Be a part of this global conversation about the importance of developing and improving character. This event is devoted to developing who we are, and who we want to be.

Why Character Day?

Character development is central to individual and societal well-being; thus, the PACE Foundation hosts Character Day Bahamas with the primary goal of engaging the public in conversation that promotes positive action and strengthens society.  For the past four years we have created opportunities for this national dialogue through Character Day, an initiative founded by the Los Angeles based film studio, Let it Ripple.

Character Day is an annual global initiative that brings together millions of people of different ages and in different contexts: schools, businesses, homes, religious organisations, and community groups.  The Bahamas is unique in its approach to Character Day because the PACE Foundation facilitates Character Day not just for its direct beneficiary, the PACE School, but for the benefit of the entire country.   We utilize and adapt the themes, activities and resources provided by Let it Ripple to tailor our programme so that it is locally relevant, conducted by local experts and presented to suit the Bahamian context. It is a highly anticipated event, especially within the education community.
