A region dedicated to “Creating a Culture of Character
In the fall of 2000, our community of Hamburg, New York launched a town-wide character initiative, championed, coordinated and resourced by the Character Council of Hamburg, Inc. After celebrating ten years of service, the Fall of 2010 was marked by an expanded commitment, inviting the Western New York Region to join us in our mission, “Creating a Culture of Character,” within individual communities.
“Creating a Culture of Character”
Excellence in character is the principal foundation for enduring personal, familial, and organizational success. The Character Council of Western New York exists to enrich the understanding of the benefits of good character and to facilitate the continual development of character excellence for citizens throughout our community of Western New York.
“Good Character Is…”
• The stable and distinctive qualities built into an individual’s life that determines his or her response, regardless of circumstance.
• The inward motivation and the outward ability to do what is right according to the highest standards of behavior.
• Moral and ethical strength that withstands challenge and adversity, essentially, making the sage decision to have a wise response in a difficult situation.
• Living a life of right conduct.
