DAVID LOWE PRESENTS CHOICES PROGRAM AT AREA SCHOOL

The CHOICES program was presented at Maranatha Baptist Academy on behalf of our area Chamber of Commerce. The program was presented to seventh and eighth graders over the course of two hours.  The main goal of the CHOICES program is connecting with the students and showing them there are many things to consider when planning their futures.

 

Activities are based around the principle of self-discipline; what it means and how to apply it to your life. The CHOICES program uses interactive exercises to help students learn the impact of their choices and how to take control of their lives through wise decision-making in different areas of life such as time and money management as well as education.
