With the new school year right around the corner, Generations for Life — the League’s youth outreach — has recently heard from a number of students across the country who are looking for help in getting pro-life clubs started at their high schools.
We love getting these requests, since helping get new pro-life clubs up and running is one of the main reasons GFL exists.
It’s for this reason that we created our Pro-Life Curriculum, which is designed as a manual for forming and maintaining an effective pro-life club.
Before I got the job of GFL co-director, I was a high school teacher, and our pro-life club used one of the first versions of the curriculum when I served as its moderator. Once we started using it, it made things a lot easier, because we no longer felt we had to “re-invent the wheel” every time we had to plan a meeting or a club activity.
We released our Pro-Life Curriculum nearly four years ago, and I’m amazed at the positive feedback it continues to generate.
A few months ago we received an edifying e-mail from Amanda, the president of the Angels for Life club at Loretto Academy in El Paso, Texas:
I just wanted to thank Generations for Life once again for sending the Pro-Life Curriculum to us! I used it for the last three meetings, and it brought on some great discussions and involvement. I can’t wait for next year to use the entire curriculum!
I appreciate so much the advice you gave. It really helped, and I know that next year will be so much better because of the help we received from Generations for Life. Once again, thank you!
Theresa, a high school student from Illinois, wrote to tell us:
I just wanted to say thank you for putting together the amazing Pro-Life Club Curriculum. It is exactly the approach I need totake to present a persuasive argument to my class. It also solidified once again my pro-life stance. Thank you very much for your efforts in creating such a binder with every possible fact, rebuttal, and pro-life alternative.
If you don’t already have our Pro-Life Curriculum, you can order one here.
And if you do already have one, please tell your friends about it and encourage them to a get a copy for themselves.
And, as always, please feel free to contact us if you ever need any additional advice for starting a club. We’d be happy to help!
