LIFE is a youth philanthropy group supported by the LaGrange County Community Foundation. LIFE provides an opportunity for young people to gain experience in community service and charitable giving. The students engage in a variety of community projects and provide oversight of the LIFE funds held at the community foundation.
LIFE members represent Lakeland School Corporation, Westview School Corporation and Prairie Heights School Corporation. There is one student representative from each grade level from 9th grade through 12th grade.
Eighth-grade students attending Westview, Prairie Heights and Lakeland have the opportunity to become LIFE members in the spring through an application process. One student from each school is accepted and remains in the program through 12th grade.
Every other year, the LIFE members host an event called LEAP (Leaders Excited About Philanthropy) for the three LaGrange County high schools.
