The purpose of the Curriculum for Life component is to clearly outline everything we believe should be part of the human learning experience for any age. This includes all traditional subjects (math, science, reading, etc.), life skills (emotional awareness and responsibility, integrity, healthy relationships, communication skills, etc.), and subjects typically reserved for college (public speaking, business skills, psychology, etc.). Our goal with this curriculum is to provide all people, at any age, with a curriculum guide to being leaders, freethinkers, amazing, creative, and world changing people – “ambassadors of the future” – with maximum choices for how to apply themselves in the evolving world. With this in mind, the categories of the Curriculum for Life Program are:
|Mindfulness and Fun|
|Honesty and Integrity|
|Knowledge and Wisdom|
|Collaboration and Cooperation|
|Sharing, Giving, and Receiving|
|Love, Connection, and Compassion|
|Communication and Language Skills|
|Community, Family, and Social Skills|
|Diversity, Differences, and Similarities|
|Freedom and Celebrating Other Perspectives|
|Contribution, Global Perspectives, and Social Science|
|Interconnectedness and Our Relationship to All Things|
Highest Good education is a significant component of One Community’s strategy for positive and permanent global transformation for The Highest Good of All. Our criteria for creation of the Curriculum for Life component of this program and all the associated curriculum pages are:
From a more traditional education standpoint, we also desire for this program to be:
Here is an explanation of how we have identified what we feel is most important to a lifetime curriculum program and chosen to organize this Curriculum for Life. As with all aspects of One Community, everything we present is purposed to function as an open source and free-shared project-launch usable blueprint that we are developing to be implemented in part, or as a complete education program, as per the desire of any individual and/or organization who finds this information helpful.
For The Highest Good of All thinking is the foundation of the entire One Community project, our non-profit organization and global change strategy, and creation of this open source and free-shared Education for Life Program. We believe that even a very small percentage of the population choosing to work together for The Highest Good of All has the ability to positively transform the world for everyone. It is for this reason that we have chosen this as our overarching philosophy, the foundation of the One Community Pledge, our Purpose, Mission, and Values, and this curriculum. The three categories of Highest Good of All thinking are 3 simple values almost everyone learns as children: Care, Share, and Play
At its most basic and foundational level, we think living for The Highest Good of All is about caring for each other and wanting to do everything we can to support the health and happiness of all people and life on our planet. Looking at emotional health, developing character, and human and planetary needs, we divide the CARE category into: Love, Connection, Compassion, and Education as Elements of Educational Curriculum for Life, Honesty and Integrity as Elements of Educational Curriculum for Life, Interconnectedness and Our Relationship to All Things as Elements of Educational Curriculum for Life, and Diversity, Differences, and Similarities as Elements of Educational Curriculum for Life.

Sharing is another value that almost everyone is specifically taught as a child that we feel is truly for The Highest Good of All. Like caring, we think that how a society and culture shares with each other is representative of its desire to work together and help one another. The four categories we divided this curriculum into are: Communication and Language Skills as Elements of Educational Curriculum for Life, Sharing, Giving, and Receiving as Elements of Educational Curriculum for Life, Contribution, Global Perspectives and Social Science as Elements of Educational Curriculum for Life, and Learning Collaboration and Cooperation as Elements of Educational Curriculum for Life.

Play for us means living life as a celebration and supporting helping others to live life this way too. While “play” can mean different things for different people, we have chosen to divide “play” into four categories that we feel are specifically relevant to individual happiness and social wellbeing for all: Mindfulness and Fun as Elements of Educational Curriculum for Life, Community, Family, and Social Skills as Elements of Educational Curriculum for Life, Freedom and Celebrating Other Perspectives as Elements of Educational Curriculum for Life, and Knowledge and Wisdom as Elements of Educational Curriculum for Life.
