On Sept. 19, 2016 As part of their 23-year partnership supporting New York City youth, United Way of New York City (UWNYC) and the New York Giants have reteamed to launch Character Playbook with the support of Verizon. The new interactive online course, focused on helping students develop character and cultivate and maintain healthy relationships, is powered by education technology leader EverFi and will serve thousands of middle school students each year in 20 schools across New York City. The program was launched at the Eagle Academy for Young Men in the Bronx.
“Building on more than two decades of partnership with the New York Giants, UWNYC is thrilled to launch Character Playbook with the support of Verizon and EverFi and continue to grow our impact on NYC youth,” said Sheena Wright, President and CEO, United Way of New York City. “Providing our young people with character-based development resources will empower them to grow into adults that foster healthy relationships with quality communication skills—it’s critical to the future of our City.”
Approximately 68% of young people between the ages of 12 and 18 have experienced some form of relationship abuse, and these experiences can negatively impact lifelong rational development. Character Playbook has six scenario-based learning modules that help students develop healthy social-emotional skill sets. The digital curriculum has been developed alongside subject matter experts, and guides students through a variety of interactive, confidence-building activities that explore true-to-life challenges like managing emotions, communicating effectively in relationships and resolving conflict. Character Playbook will teach students safe, effective options for stepping up when a friend, family member, or peer needs help.
Giants stars Jay Bromley, Kelvin Sheppard and Mark Herzlich attended launch event, which was emcee’d by former Giants player and current FOX NFL analyst David Diehl. Former Giants player and current United Way of New York City board member Amani Toomer also attended the event. The players visited a computer class and interacted with students as they worked through the Character Playbook course and later fielded questions from Eagle Academy students at a school assembly that focused on character education, being a good teammate, managing emotions and communicating effectively. The Eagle Academy marching band also performed at the event.
“The New York Football Giants have had a long standing relationship with United Way of New York City,” said Allison Stangeby, Vice President, Community & Corporate Relations, New York Football Giants. “Over the years, we have worked on many different projects. The launching of the Character Playbook is a game changer, not only for our relationship but for the students and communities in which we live. We are thrilled to be on the ground level with this new initiative.”
