Choices Education Group Overview
Target demographics: keep teens "into" school!
Direct beneficiaries per year: 71,000 students in 38 states
Geographic areas served: North America
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.
