Coach Paciorek’s advanced and age-appropriate Character Literacy Development (CLD) curriculum is based on his current doctoral research at UMSL as well as his previous research at the University of Florida. From this depth of research, he presents 25 major character values of emphasis in his programs. These 25 character values create a foundational framework that advances through all the levels in order to effectively and consistently identify, promote, develop, and assess character literacy development in our youth.

Coach Paciorek will be leading, organizing, and facilitating his CLD program each session.

Donate Your Old Glove Campaign

In partnership with the University of Florida’s Tourism, Recreation, and Sport Management Program (TRSM), Character Loves Company launched a campaign in 2017 to deliver 250 gently-used baseball and softball gloves to underserved youth in Cuba!

Coach Paciorek traveled to Havana, Cuba in Spring, 2017 along with students and faculty from the University of Florida. Cuba has a rich history of baseball and Character Loves Company was able to hand-deliver a glove to each and every child the group encountered in need of a glove.

Community Talks:

Coach Paciorek has given more than one hundred community talks around the country in the past five years. He speaks to coaches, parents, and youth ranging from junior high through college-aged student-athletes about the importance of character development through the vehicle of sport.
