The Workshops

What We Cover

The teacher-approved curriculum makes the case for staying in school and introduces teens to skills for success including time management, decision making and goal setting. Trained volunteers engage teens in interactive exercises during the workshop and share their real-world experiences and insights. Teachers remain in the classroom during the sessions.

CHOICES presenters serve as positive adult role models from the “real world.” This gives them credibility in the eyes of the teens they serve.

Wow! What an impact! I want to start school all over again to use their advice. They were engaging, caring, funny and inspiring. The way they connect with 8th graders, it’s not easy, and I learned a few new ways from observing them.”

The Impact

Approximately 6 million teens have participated in CHOICES, and we have partnered with hundreds of organizations and engaged thousands of volunteer presenters. Our greatest impact, however, is demonstrated through the testimonials from students, teachers and presenters.

The Two-Day Structure

NOTE: The structure described below is how CHOICES has been delivered in the past. Due to the impacts of Covid-19 on in-person school classroom instruction, we have developed a virtual version of CHOICES that is delivered online in real-time during one 45-minute session conducted on one day. Please contact us for more information about how you can bring this engaging and well-received version of CHOICES to the students in your community!

The CHOICES workshop consists of two 45-minute sessions delivered on consecutive days in the classroom during the school day. The first session focuses on the value of staying in school and the second session introduces life skills to help teens succeed in both school and life.
