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 Choices program:
- Staff and volunteers use behaviour rehearsals ,guest speakers, video clips, and interactive activities to illustrate weekly topics
