About Us

The Queen Anne's County Character Counts! Program has joined forces with the CommUNITY Mentoring Partnership and Developmental Assets to have the largest possible impact on the youth of Queen Anne's County.


All children and youth need caring, supportive adults in their lives in order to become responsible, productive citizens in their community. 


The Character Counts! Advisory Council believes in using a four-step model to help build citizens of character.
