The Pittsburgh Airport Area Chamber Enterprise Foundation is looking for volunteer presenters from our business community to take the CHOICES workshop to our future workforce!
CHOICES is an interactive two-hour classroom seminar designed to help middle school students realize the long-term implications of the decisions they are making in school today. The program offers creative, highly participatory exercises facilitated by volunteers from the business community.
CHOICES hands-on activities awaken students to the fact that they have the power to make important future-impacting decisions right now. The seminar develops the ideas of time management, self-discipline and wise academic decision-making. It brings home to teenagers the meaning of the term “cost of living” and exposes them to sobering information about the education and skills required for various occupations in today’s and tomorrow’s workplace.
Self-discipline is encouraged as the key to success in their endeavors and at the end of the seminar they are given the "Key to Success" as a reminder of the control they have over their choices and their futures.
Not only is CHOICES engaging for middle school students, it is also fun and easy to present!
