Character Does Matter Graduation – Spring 2015

Travis Manion Foundation partnered with St. Joseph’s Preparatory High School in Philadelphia to deliver an eight-week course, which was taught by Veterans who served as TMF Ambassadors. The Character Does Matter program connects the heroes of today with the leaders of tomorrow. TMF has partnered with two urban high schools in Philadelphia and New York City to provide an 8-week Leadership Course at each school in the fall and spring. Each Leadership Course is open to select high school students that exhibit great character and leadership potential. The classes are led by a team of young veterans who facilitate the weekly classes and serve as mentors to the students. Veterans and students celebrated the end of their 10-week course with a day of ropes challenges and team-building in partnership with Philadelphia Outward Bound
