Life Choices Program
The Life Choices Program equips children and youth with critical attitudes and skills to make informed and responsible choices about their lives and futures.
Through a selection of workshops, it unpacks relevant and relatable issues that young people face and empowers them with practical tools to adjust their thinking and behavior.
The program is delivered at schools and via online platforms, and all workshop topics link into the South African Life Orientation curriculum.
