The Flagship Program is a community-school partnership whose mission is to enhance the social, academic, and cultural achievement of Missoula's young people by creating opportunities for skill development, both in and out of school.  Willard is one of the participating schools in Missoula Pubic Schools.

At each Flagship school, Youth Development Coordinators work with principles to arrange, schedule, recruit for and oversee the after-school and summer programs. These coordinators also work with site teams made up of parents, teachers, principles, and students to determine what activities meet the needs of that particular school community.

Examples of activities include tutoring, mentoring, skill development classes, sports, art classes, cooking/nutrition/gardening classes, conflict resolution groups, youth theater, job shadowing, community volunteer service, and service learning projects. They also arrange for food and transportation for students to and from activities.

All Flagship services and activities are provided free of cost to students.
