BACBSA hosts ‘Learning for Life’ fundraising dinner at ACC

Texas Parks and Wildlife Fish and Wildlife Technician Kyle Chernosky (right) talks with children participating in the Learning for Life program at various schools throughout Brazoria and Galveston Counties during an event in Texas City on May 14. For over 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America has provided its participants with opportunities and resources to gain life skills that help foster positive personal development and a dedication to community and environmental stewardship.

Through its Learning for Life program, the Bay Area Council of Boy Scouts of America (BACBSA) is now making many of those opportunities and resources available to every kindergarten through 12th grade student in Brazoria and Galveston Counties.

The goals of Learning for Life are to “encourage a desire for lifelong learning, foster the acquisition and application of personal/social skills, prepare tomorrow’s workforce through exposure of career management skills and develop engaged citizens.”

Currently, 14 public schools in Brazoria County and 18 in Galveston County implement Learning for Life lessons into their curriculum. The cost of the program is only $5 for licensing and materials per student per year.

Many Parent Teacher Organizations and local Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs are helping to sponsor the program at various schools.

In order to expand Learning for Life in more schools in Brazoria and Galveston Counties, BACBSA is hosting a fundraising support dinner at the Alvin Community College Nolan Ryan Center on June 3 at 7 p.m.

For more information about donating to the Learning for Life program and/or participating in the support dinner on June 3, call BACBSA at (409) 744-5206. ACC is located at 3110 Mustang Road.
