Review for CHOICES Education Group, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Choices is absolutely an awesome program for teens. It's fun, interesting, engaging and most of all, the teens "get it"! They understand what it means to make decisions/choices in various parts of their school and life making them accountable for consequences both good and bad. They also learn that it's not possible to ALWAYS make a good decision in which case they become "wise" by not making the same bad choice again. Volunteering for a CHOICES program is also very meaningful and enlightening. One spends two days with the same eighth grade class....and you get to know the kids. By calling on some of the more shy ones to volunteer, the CHOICES vignettes actually helps them to be more vocal and make their opinions known. Overall, as a volunteer, I'm hooked. I enjoy the interaction with the students and assisting them to leaning about choice-making. I strongly feel that I am having a positive impact on some very impressionable young people...and that doesn't happen very often!!!

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