CHARACTER PLAYBOOK

The NFL and United Way have launched Character Playbook, a digital curriculum that guides students through interactive, confidence-building activities that explore challenges like managing emotions, communicating effectively in relationships and resolving conflict. Most importantly, the course prepares students with safe, effective options for stepping up when a friend, family member, or fellow student needs help.

On Monday, October 31, the Dallas Cowboys together with United Way of Metropolitan Dallas (UWMD), and United Way of Tarrant County (UWTC) launched Character Playbook TM, a new online course focused on helping students develop character and engage in healthy relationships.

Character Playbook was launched locally with the 18th Annual NFL United Way Hometown Huddle – a league-wide day of community service wherein NFL clubs partner with their local United Way agencies to promote youth health and wellness in their communities. As part of this year’s Hometown Huddle, the Gene and Jerry Jones Family Foundation will present both Arlington ISD and Frisco ISD with grants of $2,500 each to fund character education programming in their districts.

There were two separate launch events: in the morning at Staley Middle School in Frisco, and in the afternoon at Workman Junior High School in Arlington.
