What is ACTT?

ACTT is an organization that began in 2006 to facilitate meaningful and lasting character improvement by using a methodology that includes learning Torah, performing actions, making commitments, and sharing motivational material. ACTT creates an environment that supports an individual's efforts by assisting with challenges and celebrating successes.

ACTT membership is free and admission is free to ACTT events. You can remotely participate in the ACTT program by listening to the event speakers on this web site's Audio pages and by accessing the material on this web site's Module pages. You can purchase the source books from your local Jewish bookstore or online (see this web site's Links page). As an ACTT member, you will receive e-mails that provide chizuk, web site update notifications, and event-related information.
