Programs: CHOICES, an interactive live classroom workshop that empowers teens to make positive educational CHOICES to increase their career and life opportunities. In two 45-minute sessions trained community volunteers take students through real-world exercises on the consequences of dropping out and the benefits of educational attainment, also introducing them to skills for success such as self-discipline, decision making, time management and goal setting. CHOICES has been delivered to more than six million teens in three countries since 1985.

Our follow-up activity is a cell phone text messaging game that teens play out of school to help them practice making thoughtful choices. The game asks them to guide a fictional in-game character facing daily choices based on the classroom workshop, engaging them in critical thinking to address challenging situations they will themselves face in high school.

Mission:
Our mission is to empower students with vital tools that will increase their career and life opportunities.

The CHOICES program that we presented to eighth graders last year really opened some eyes. Eighth grade students are well-positioned to have their eyes opened when their attention is drawn to developments that could be happening in their lives soon. It's relevant, so unless they are completely ... more »
