A certificate will be given to each student who participates in this program. The goals of choices and challenges are as follows: to encourage higher educational career aspirations in girls/guys; to discourage self-destructive behaviors, such as drug/alcohol abuse, violence, dropping out of school; encourage girls/guys to plan for economic self-sufficiency; to delay motherhood/fatherhood; and to prepare them for the many choices/challenges they will encounter as they grow into womanhood/manhood Applications are available from any school guidance counselor.
