The Choices Program [Website]

The Choices Program was established in 1988 as a national education program that seeks to engage students at the secondary level in consideration of international issues and contribute to a renewal of civic engagement among young people in the United States.

Choices is founded on three core ideas: (1) There is a growing need to strengthen the skills and habits of citizenship in order to contribute to the renewal of American democracy. (2) We must do this in ways that contribute to our understandings of who we are as a nation and how we fit into the broader world. (3) In a healthy democracy, public education has an inherent responsibility to contribute to this effort.
