MISSION

Too much talent is wasted today in our schools and universities. Our future depends on finding and building the strengths of young people. The Clifton Foundation is dedicated to research and education to further this mission. We teach leaders and researchers to identify and develop strengths in young people. Each partner project has a ten-year goal for growth and impact.

Our lab approach is personal, longitudinal, and experience based. Top strengths researchers accumulate data and stories from schools across the country. Our mission is to report findings and take action on what works.
