You can help update Learning for Life curriculum

If you’re a teacher, educator or curriculum writer, you can add your expertise in updating the character education lesson plans for Learning for LifeApplications are being accepted through May 26, and those hired will work on the project over this summer.

Each educator hired will receive $3,500 to work on the project, which starts in June. These lesson plans will be intended for students grades pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, including special needs.

Learning for Life team members will review the applications and contact those selected on the next step.

What is Learning for Life?

Incorporated in 1991, Learning for Life helps empower young people to build character and leadership skills through a research-based, school-focused curriculum. The program uses age-appropriate, grade-specific lesson plans that educators can use in the classroom.

Exploring, a club career-education program for young people ages 10-20, is part of the Learning for Life program, which is an affiliate of the Boy Scouts of America.

The curriculum helps students with their self-confidence, motivation and self-esteem, as well as aiding in their decision-making for themselves, their families and their futures.

What will you do?

Educators who are hired for this project will serve as character education subject matter experts, working on updates of a specific Learning for Life curriculum book. They will review the books to become familiar with the curriculum and update each lesson plan into a new format, ensuring each plan is relevant and engaging for each grade.

Educators will review the lesson plans and can recommend edits and write new material for each book if needed. They will work with curriculum developers and project managers to submit drafts of edited books and review final versions.
