Program Description

This program encourages youth between the ages of 12 to 17 to make informed and relevant decisions and to promote positive choices in their lives. Choices is a 2 hour group that meets for over 10 weeks. The program is delivered by the program coordinators along with our volunteer coaches who provide positive role modeling, and support to our youth. Weekly topics may include: Communication; Decision Making; Goal Setting; Drugs and Alcohol; Coping Strategies/Marijuana; Taking Risks/Social Media. Staff and volunteers use behaviour rehearsals, guest speakers, video clips, and interactive activities to illustrate weekly topics.
