Leaders and Volunteers
All of the contributions to the Lifetime Learning Connections culture are strengthened by the importance we place on family and building a healthy balance between kids, siblings, teens and parents, and family relationships.
Instructor & Life Coach - Kidz & Teenz Kourses
Tawnya started the Kidz Kourse in 2014. Her passion is love…teaching kids how to communicate not only verbally but also through their energy and tone. She empowers each member of the core team to continue to contribute their leadership skills towards making the Kidz Kourse the best for everyone. Her intuitive, compassionate, blend of instructor and coach guide the team and volunteers to see that the children benefit from this experiencial training course learning new life-skills to become better team members in their families, at their schools, and in their communities.
Tawnya knows it is too easy to waste time staying “stuck” with baggage from the past and works with kids in the course to recognize their power; teaching how they give their power away and learning how to stand in their own power with love. Letting go of negative emotional memories and choosing better ways to behave are skills they don’t teach at school. Parents and children now have access to learning how to build happy loving compassionate families that will work together as a team.
Tawnya is a Behavior Management Specialist, Parenting Coach, and Life Coach.
Coach - Kidz Kourse
Gabriel has been involved with the Kidz Kourse since its inception in 2014, assisting and eventually instructing the course. He started working on personal development in earnest in 2012 and hasn't stopped since then, learning all the while through Personal Development Community Organization courses (TLC, Advanced, Leadership), Lifetime Learning Connections courses (Kidz Kourse), and Heart, Mind and Soul Parenting's redirecting children's behavior course, and joining and starting successful men's groups.
His passion for teaching and easy way with the children inspires others, and his dedication to the kids and advancing our organization makes him an invaluable member of our team. His background in engineering and new emotional maturity gives him a valuable and uncommon perspective.
What is your favorite part of Kidz Kourse?
"My favorite part is seeing the kids trust each other. I grew up mistrusting of others so I find it really gratifying when I see the kids really trusting in themselves and each other, forming those invaluable bonds. "
What is your personal goal in volunteering?
"My personal goal is to help kids trust in themselves and others, and to set an example as a good role model for them."
