Choices Life Skills Program  |  Making Choices Life Skills CurriculumResources/Testimonials Donate Now!

CHOICES for girls, CHALLENGES for teenage boys engagingly address the myths and hard
realities teenagers must face entering adulthood. Both books detail the critical choices and
challenges teens must consider in order to become productive, independent human beings.

What you’ll find in the new CHOICES LIFE SKILLS PROGRAM:

  • Motivating narratives that address today’s challenges.
  • Current information regarding cost of living, occupations, wages, and financial aid for
    post-secondary education.
  • Characteristic hands-on approach that has inspired users since its original publication.
  • Sound preventative education, values and goals clarification, and proven personal
    planning techniques.
  • Promotion of economic independence and self-sufficiency.

With a few necessary variations in presentation, the subject matter is parallel in each book,
and the page numbers are identical. Through the use of provocative exercises, charts, interview
techniques and other interactive methods, CHOICES and CHALLENGES help develop skills in the
important areas of goal setting, skills identification, decision making, money management,
post-secondary education, and career, lifestyle, and family planning. CHANGES for women, can
also be used in conjunction with CHOICES in Mother Daughter workshops or for use with women in
re-entry classes or rehab programs. 

These self-discovery books practically teach by themselves.  Designed to be used together or
separately, the CHOICES LIFE SKILLS PROGRAM provides flexible program delivery options for
a variety of educational and community settings.  Materials include: Journals, Student Workbooks,
Instructor’s Guides, and Handbooks for classroom and support programs for youth and women.
