Every school day 7,000 U.S. students become dropouts, resulting in 26% of students failing to graduate on time each year. The mission of CHOICES Education Group is to empower students with vital tools that will increase their career and life opportunities. Getting involved with CHOICES is one of the most effective and powerful ways to help with this education crisis. Each year, Chamber of Commerce volunteers present this valuable program to every 8th grader at the Alexander City Middle School. CHOICES is a two-day program with interactive activities and real life examples of the importance of staying in school.
