We are currently welcoming new volunteers to join our team of business and community volunteers to deliver the compelling CHOICES workshop in middle schools throughout King County.
CHOICES is an interactive decision-making workshop that focuses on keeping teens in school, motivating them toward their education and future, and introducing them to practical life skills to help them succeed. Volunteers take students through real-world exercises about the consequences of dropping out and the opportunities gained by staying in school. They also introduce practical life skills to help teens succeed, skills such as time management, goal setting and self-discipline. Started by a Seattle dad over 30 years ago to break through to his son, we have since served 6 million teens across the nation!
Being a CHOICES Presenter is very fulfilling - you are the messenger! The CHOICES materials and props lead you and the students right through the workshop. One presenter commented, "I wish this program was around when I was in school." Who wouldn’t be pleased if a student told you afterward, "You really inspired me!"? You can help us attack the high school dropout epidemic and turn a teen around today!
What’s the annual commitment? Three workshops, roughly ten hours over an entire school year - and a caring heart. You’ll take our simple online training. We’ll then provide the materials you’ll need and will schedule you to deliver two 45-50 minute sessions in local middle schools over a two-day period, three times during the school year. You’ll need to take some time off from work during the school day, but it’s well worth it for the sake of teens!
For more information please call Christine Segat, King County Program Manger at 206-246-4237 to get started today!
