We believe educators have a powerful voice to empower the next generation.

We encourage educators to be all they can be and provide teachers with the tools they need to inspire their students. MakeYouThink’s powerful character media resources are used by educators and youth leaders worldwide.

Our Character Collection challenges young people to think deeply about character traits in a modern way through a collection of 12 DVDs. The films are motivational, giving students an opportunity to open up and talk about the things that matter most in life.
