LifeSmarts Announces Partnership with UL’s Safety Smart® Ambassador Program
LifeSmarts is offering an exciting new opportunity for its participants: Safety Smart! Our latest expansion effort and partnership, with Underwriters Laboratories, (UL), is offering teens a chance to focus on health and safety curriculum while giving back through community service.
Sign up for the LifeSmarts Safety Smart Ambassador program. We give you everything you need: the presentations, the lesson plans, the worksheets, and videos featuring Timon and Pumbaa from Disney’s the Lion King.
You take it from there – you get to present the fun, entertaining content to kids ages 4-10, and you can use it to fulfill whatever community service requirements you may have. You also have the chance to win prizes and scholarships.

TeamSmarts is a web-based team competition. Each month from September through January teams are invited to take a 100 point multiple-choice quiz focused on one LifeSmarts topic. Quizzes are open for the entire month. Prizes are awarded each month.
There is a Quick-Start Guide available to explain the steps for registering and taking the quiz.
There are three categories of TeamSmarts teams. There are LifeSmarts teams, FBLA teams and FCCLA teams. FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) and FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) teams must be coached by a business (FBLA) or family consumer science (FCCLA) teacher and all of the members of those teams must be members of the student organization. Each winning team from each of the three categories receive $100 for winning that monthly competition.

As one teen told us after making a Safety Smart presentation, “Little kids are not that bad and teaching them was fun. Also, kids enjoy having visitors in their classroom – especially older students.”
