This study will focus on how character education is implemented in an alternative education school that teaches at-risk youth. This research gives a brief explanation of what character education and at risk youth mean. There is also a review of literature from various researchers about youth, what makes character education programs successful, and what is lacking in these programs. The study observed ten students, interviewed three teachers, the principal, and four students, along with a student survey. Data was analyzed by finding themes and common codes. Findings and implications will be discussed in the conclusion.
