Review for CHOICES Education Group, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Hello, my name is David Matty and I am a Financial Advisor and a Rotarian in Mountain Home, Arkansas. I heard about the CHOICES educational program about ten years ago and I spearheaded an effort to get our Rotary Club to start doing it in our area schools. We learned together how to teach the program to eightn graders and then we went into the schools, all as volunteers and presented the program. What a response!! The students and teachers both felt it was such a great worthwhile program they wanted to do it every year. We got so much out of it as Rotarians, we wanted to also do it every year! We are now presenting CHOICES to three area schools and to over 300 eighth graders each year. The teachers call us each fall to tell our Rotary Club when they have us in their curriculum! I now also serve our Rotary District as CHOICES Chairman and we have over 25 Rotary Clubs presenting CHOICES in their area schools! It is a program that the students can relate to and it is given in a way they can understand! I love CHOICES and will give it 5 stars!!
