Review for CHOICES Education Group, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Seven years ago, I began in a newly generated position at the Hermiston School District. As the Project College Bound Coordinator, I was to create a culture of post-secondary education in our rural community. Being new to the district and that the program was new, I was always on the hunt for ways to change the mindset of our students. When researching for a speech on making choices, I stumbled upon the “CHOICES” Program located in Seattle, Washington. The very small CHOICES staff, has been exceptional in working with our school district to find funding to implement the program. The program itself is designed in such a manner as engage the student’s attention and make them active participants not only during the presentation, but active participants in their own lives as well. The presentation makes the topic of Money Management and the concept of planning for their future relevant to the students. This presentation has become a necessity in our Health Classes that are delivered to freshmen and has allowed me to mentor many students that I met during the presentations.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have a followup to the program that would be implemented two years after the first presentation.
