Learning Life Company - A Non-Profit Corporation

aka The Get in the Game Program   |   Hayden, ID   |  www.GITG.org

Mission

Learning Life Company’s mission is to offer a bridge for young adults to cross into adulthood.

The life skill curriculum and services are tied together to make a personalized program that influences members to recognize their talents, pursue their dreams and to immediately begin creating a future that inspires them.

Notes from the nonprofit

Please stay in touch as we just received charity status October 2013 (pending since 2012) and we are now tying everything together prior to our national launch spring 2014.

Our greatest needs right now:

-3 qualified board members
-A reputable corporate sponsor
-Funding and/or program partners

There is no financial data to date as Learning Life Company has been operating thus far on volunteer time and Director's resources. You may help change this by sponsoring, donating, volunteering, sharing our information www.GITG.org, and collaborating with LLCo. The Get.in the.Game program is very broad and has room for a wide variety of collaborations - we cover over 30 life skill topics!

Thank you for your time. Please stay in touch and visit the website. And don't forget the power of online sharing! We have many free resources on the website to share with your networks!

Thank you kindly,
Wendy W. Snodgrass

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

EntreGivers

Youth members create projects that serve a charitable purpose. They design the project by using a business plan template and they treat the 'project' as a mini-business (4-6 week project).
Learning Life Company brings in a twist by editing the business plan and modifying it so that their project plan includes all 'life skill learning' opportunities.

Population(s) Served

This program offers over 30 projects for young adults to complete. Projects include the idea/ goal; an explanation of the topic (i.e. budgeting, grocery shopping, paying taxes, etc.); and instructions on how to complete the project. In most instances there is a template and/or supporting information about the topic and the project such as videos, articles, how-to instructions, and simplified versions of complex information.

All projects are very different, interactive, important to any adult life, and on GITG.org they are made to be entertaining.

LLCo helps young adults apply the experience from these projects to resumes, portfolios, applications and other relevant life situations.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Learning Life Company (LLCo's) goal for 2014 is launch on a national level! But first, the first quarter requires some preliminary work. LLCo is prioritizing the tasks that were on hold in 2013 while our charity status was pending (a 16 month wait).
501 (c) 3 status was not confirmed until October 31, 2013 (although the date is recorded from the application date, May 2012.)

Pre-Launch tasks and priorities include:

1. Finish recruiting board members. We need a minimum of 3.
2. Continue signing up and utilizing benefits for charities (including GuideStar).
3. Funding is top priority and ongoing.
4. Nurture and/or conclude relationships and potential partnerships that were being built prior to the 501 (c) 3 notice. This includes but is not limited to:
(a) America's Promise Alliance - as a GradNation Community, LLCo has to finalize its action steps and recruit support throughout Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
(b) Lake City High School in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho has been acting as a pilot program (to a certain degree). The director will continue her work there for the school year (spring 2014) and then transfer results into a new action plan for high schools. (One of many)

Funding Strategies (each one has its own strategies)

1. Grant applications (which focus on at-risk populations)
2. The College Games program is being written January 2014 and will be available to the public before March 2014. There is a team-based fee to participate in this six month life skill 'game'.
3. Webinars & Local Training - how to utilize the Get in the Game program online, for educators and parents. This revenue source is in the works and is pending feedback from a local workforce training before going national.
4. Recruit corporate sponsors.
5. Sell advisor services to affluent parents whose teens are graduating high school.
6. Albertson's community partners cards - being tested at one location in Mesa, Arizona

LLCo needs volunteers, interns and once funding is accrued, employees.
Until then capabilities are limited to the Director who is working full-time as a volunteer, and board members.

The web platform is ready and services are available. The Director is in charge of marketing and utilizes her high school volunteers and online social networking as much as possible. The program will launch nationally by March 2014. A local launch will happen at a date to be determined and will use a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony (part of Chamber benefits) as a local platform.

1. There are two grant applications pending (as of January 2014) and two additional applications in the works.
2. The College Games will be made public to colleges throughout February 2014 via phone and email contacts, social networking and industry networking (youth-based and school-based). The director has two high school volunteers working on this project as part of their Youth Volunteers in Action class.
3. Webinars and local training - this will be done online so the Director can serve multiple crowds at once.
4. Corporate sponsors - LLCo has not taken action on this yet. Now that the GuideStar report is ready this will be a priority.
5. Advisor services - no update on 'capabilities and strategy at this time.
6. Albertson's Community Partner cards - in the process of receiving up-to-date information and discussing moving forward with more locations in the southwestern states.

This section will be updated after first quarter.
Current activities this week (January 15, 2014) include:
- Collaboration with potential partner for local grant application
- Collaboration with potential partner for national relationship regarding the Get in the Game Wellness section
- Finishing The College Games powerpoint presentation and rules & guidelines
- Finishing donation buttons for website, Guidestar report (this), and signing up for services available to charities.
