The Utah National Parks Council has announced that it is the recipient of a three-year, $101,400 Daniels Fund grant. This grant, in support of the Boy Scouts of America Learning for Life program, will go directly to fund an in-school program, serving students K-12 in the San Juan School District.
Learning for Life provides programs that are designed to support schools and other youth-serving organizations in their efforts toward preparing youth to successfully handle the complexities of today’s society and to enhance their self-confidence, motivation, and self-worth. Learning for Life also helps youth develop social and life skills, assists in character development, and helps them formulate positive personal values.
This particular grant will support a values-driven curriculum targeted to improve students’ classroom behavior, interpersonal skills, and decision-making skills. It is available to any school within the San Juan School District.
The Daniels Fund operates the Daniels College Prep and Scholarship Program and the Daniels Fund Grants Program in Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming and Utah. The Fund was established in 1997 by Bill Daniels, a pioneer in cable television known for his kindness and generosity to those in need.
