Mission:

 The mission of CHOICES Education Group is to empower students with vital tools that will increase their career and life opportunities. Workshop In two hour-long sessions, business and community volunteers take students through real-world exercises on academic self-discipline, time and money management and goal setting. The specific goals of the program are to:

 Prevent at-risk teens from dropping out of school

 Increase the engagement of teens in their education and future

 Empower teens with skills in time management, money management and goal setting

 Build sustainable local business, education and community partnerships with CHOICES Beliefs

 Every student deserves the opportunity to reach her or his highest potential.

 Students must not only be offered an education; they must actively participate in it.

 The sooner communities offer support and guidance to students, the better the students will be able to take advantage of the opportunities available to them.

 The business community has a vested interest in the quality of students graduating from schools and a responsibility to share in the effort to prepare students for the future.
