The Find Your Character Project

What does “character development” look like for CYT?

At CYT, we understand that “good character” needs a north star. What truly defines good character? What do we use as the guide to explain “character development”? The answer is simple. All character development is rooted in reflecting Jesus. Reflect means to show an image of or to embody in a faithful way. We are teaching students how to reflect Christ in their words and in their actions. Simply put, character development is becoming more like Christ.

The Find Your Character Project filters tools and resources through three lenses: the CYT Mission Statement, the CYT Values, and CYT’s Triple Threat (Character, Culture, Craft).

Christian Youth Theater develops character and creativity through quality theater arts training that brings families and communities together while reflecting Jesus.
