Review for CHOICES Education Group, Seattle, WA, USA
The Greater Reading Chamber of Commerce & Industry was looking for a program that would improve the graduation rate in our local school district. It is part of our initiative to build bridges between school and work to create a job ready workforce pipeline. In 2014 we engaged 50+ volunteers that became certified as CHOICES presenters. We touched 1,158 students in 51 classrooms, 11 teachers and 4 administrators. There was positive program feedback from the teachers, administration, students, and volunteers that participated in CHOICES.
The CHOICES curriculum provides students with the understanding that self-discipline is the key to success. It helps them understand that they can choose who they become and overcome obstacles in life to be successful. The presenters also gained valuable insight about the influences that are impacting their future workforce. It provided the business community with tools to interact more effectively with educators to address workforce pipeline requirements.
