“Students find it stressful to ask their parents about this topic and sometimes resort to finding their own answers through friends or the internet which obviously can’t always be trusted. Therefore, with this opportunity, you know that students will be getting factual information provided by Life’s Choices.”
“The information presented was very relevant for teens today and for some, was an eye opener. It was presented in an appropriate manner, and it was well received by our students.”
“I highly recommend that schools utilize the school programs that Life’s Choices offers. The content is relevant; the stats are up-to-date. The staff is not only knowledgeable, but also very comfortable working with teens. The programs Life’s Choices offers are a great supplement to our current curriculum and reinforce what we are teaching. We have been using Life’s Choices for years and will definitely continue utilizing their services.”
“They provide a non-intimidating and fun atmosphere that the students really enjoy. This is not just another lesson; it’s a lesson that students talk about and look forward to. Many students have admitted that it’s difficult to discuss this topic with their parents or guardians and this lesson really teaches them some valuable information that will help them in the present and in the future. I can tell that the instructors from Hamburg Life’s Choices are committed to their work and love their job.”
