Children Have Options In Choosing Experiences (C.H.O.I.C.E.) is a listening ear for children during their darkest hour, a hand of praise during their shining moments and a voice of reason during challenging times. C.H.O.I.C.E. helps youth and adolescents navigate through issues at home, at school, and within their community by equipping them with coping and problem-solving skills to make positive choices. Our children face societal issues such as poverty, substance abuse, violence, mental health, and lack of parental supervision. Children have to overcome these societal issues with expectations to achieve well academically. C.H.O.I.C.E works alongside with Jefferson County Public Schools ( JCPS) to support academic excellence by addressing social and emotional challenges and teaching leadership skills.
The "Dare to Dream" Sports Leadership and Mentoring Program is C.H.O.I.C.E. Inc. non-traditional approach to mentoring. C.H.O.I.C.E. utilizes cross-age peer mentoring rather than the traditional adult to youth match. Cross-age peer mentoring is defined as the mentoring process occurring among high school student athletes and elementary students. Mentors are educated to ensure not only they feel prepared to mentor their elementary-aged mentee but have the necessary skills, attitude and knowledge base to be successful in life.
