Learning for Life: Linda Willis

The Texarkana Oaklawn Rotary Club had the pleasure of welcoming Learning for Life Director Linda Willis, as our weekly guest speaker Tuesday afternoon.

Linda spoke to our club about the Learning for Life program and some of the various ways they are enriching our community through teaching our children quality character traits and practical life skills, while also taking time to recognize and encourage them for a job well done.

Learning for Life is a PreK-12, Integrated Academic and Character Development curriculum. Based on the values and ethics of traditional Scouting, Learning for Life meets the needs of a broader student population—girls, boys and at-risk youth. By developing quality character traits and practical life skills that are highly compatible with the goals of our education system, Learning for Life equips the whole child: socially, emotionally and academically.

Program administrators recruit community and career speakers as classroom guests who encourage students to embrace education and realize the necessity of staying in school. By involving local business, civic and community members in the lives of our young people, we forge the kind of partnership that is needed to make a profound difference in the lives of our children.

In the Caddo Area Council, Learning for Life serves over 5600 young people.
