Washington High makes the right CHOICES
During the week of Jan. 25-29, eight Georgia Power volunteers have been at Booker T. Washington High School delivering the CHOICES program. Volunteers are scheduled to implement the CHOICES program through the ninth-grade English/Language Arts classes in the Schools of Banking, Finance and Investment; Early College; Senior Academy; and Health Science and Nutrition. They brought their experiences and expertise to take students through real-world exercises on academic self-discipline, time and money management, and goal setting. As a result, teens discover that they can take charge of their lives.
CHOICES is an interactive, decision-making workshop that empowers teens to achieve academic success in pursuit of their career and life aspirations. The CHOICES workshop is typically presented at the eighth- or ninth-grade level because these students are old enough to envision the future yet young enough to develop positive skills and habits for success in high school and beyond.
