Company offers free youth educational programs


— While budgets are tight at schools nationwide, Modern Woodmen offers programs and materials to help teachers and students. Local Modern Woodmen representative Jean Ann Goodman of Scott Depot offers free youth educational programs to local schools, homeschoolers and youth groups.

Six free youth educational programs benefit more than 2 million kids annually. The current programs offered by Modern Woodmen include ecology awareness, exercise and nutrition, financial literacy, patriotic civics, safety and life skills, and school speech contest.

Each program includes free materials for teachers and students.

As a tax-exempt fraternal benefit society, Modern Woodmen sells life insurance, annuity and investment products not to benefit stockholders but to improve the quality of life of its stakeholders: members, their families and their communities. This is accomplished through social, charitable and volunteer activities.

Last year, Modern Woodmen and its members provided nearly $29 million and 1 million volunteer hours for community projects nationwide.
