Involvement

More than 20,000 schools and organizations nationwide are involved with the Learning for Life program.

Learning for Life is an ideal vehicle for mobilizing community resources and delivering the collected experience of local business, civic, and community leaders into the lives of our youth and schools. This is accomplished by presenters sharing ideas about overcoming life's obstacles, giving realistic views of the world of work, and guiding youth toward achieving their goals.

Businesses realize tremendous rewards and satisfaction by supporting and participating in this special partnership. Not only does being a partner meet a critical community need, but employees gain personal and professional satisfaction as their efforts make a profound difference in the lives of young people. Every school and organization conducting Learning for Life will have a professional Learning for Life representative assigned to it to assist in implementation and to provide ongoing support.

In order to implement Learning for Life in schools and organizations, these key steps are necessary:

  1. Complete Memorandum of Understanding between the school, business, or organization and Learning for Life.
  2. Determine the scope of work involved in serving the school.
  3. Appoint a committee.
  4. Select adults who will give direction.
