Mission

“To develop and deliver engaging, research based academic, character, leadership and career focused programs aligned to state and national standards that guide and enable all students to achieve their full potential.”

The Learning for Life Corporation offers seven programs designed to support schools and community based organizations in their efforts to prepare youth to successfully handle the complexities of contemporary society and to enhance their self-confidence, motivation, and self-esteem. These programs focus on character education and career education. We have six school based programs and one worksite based program.

 

Vision: PreK-12

“To provide engaging and relevant PreK-12 solutions that positively impact academic performance, social & emotional maturity, character development, and career education for all students.”

 

What is Learning for Life?

Learning for Life (“LFL”) makes academic learning fun and relevant to real-life situations in age appropriate and grade specific material. As a result, the positive character traits and skills learned by participation in LFL not only make students more confident and capable, but also give them an invaluable understanding of how things work in the real world. School and community demands for character education and career education programs have greatly influenced the dramatic growth of LFL. These programs have been adopted by more than 17,000 schools and organizations nationwide, serving over 1.5 million youth.

Vision: Exploring

“To provide positive and meaningful real-world career experiences and leadership development opportunities for all teenagers and young adults in their chosen field of interest.”

 

What Is Exploring?

Exploring is Learning for Life’s career education program for young men and women who are 14 (and have completed the eighth grade) or 15 through 20 years old. Exploring is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth and the organizations in their communities. Local community organizations initiate an Explorer post by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. The result is a program of activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, and develop.

Explorer posts can specialize in a variety of career skills. Exploring programs are based on five areas of emphasis: career opportunities, life skills, citizenship, character education, and leadership experience. Currently we collaborate with Police and Fire Departments, Law and Government Professionals, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Professionals, Aviation, and SOON MANY MORE! 

Students have the potential to: job shadow, submit for scholarships, learn the type of skills and abilities required of a specific job, have executive level mentors, and the opportunity to attend national conferences and competitions.  We also provide programs focused on Leadership, Drug Prevention, Character Education and more.
