In Their Own Words…

 

Healthy Relationship Students

 

Right Choices has changed my life greatly. Right Choices came to our school and talked to us about sex and why it is important to wait until you are married. They also taught us about life choices and what we want and should do with our life. I like Right Choices and plan to follow the example they are setting.”  ~ Middle School Student

“Right Choices has affected my life in numerous ways. It has made me think more about the choices I will make, the paths I will walk, and how I have a different perspective on things. There are many different ways that I can choose to go in life. Since Right Choices has come along my perspective has changed. I had never thought about how decisions can alter a person’s life. One little decision can affect everything else that happens in your future. Since coming in contact with Right Choices, I am more aware of how I can strive to think about the choices I will make in life, that paths I will walk into, and my perspective on things. Right Choices helped me change my future.”  ~ Middle School Student

“Right Choices has drastically affected my life. The first time I went, I was really nervous. I didn’t know how to act. I wasn’t used to talking about things like that. Since I have begun Right Choices, it has actually helped me to make right choices in my life. The people there helped me appreciate being healthy and having lots of things more. Some of the things we talked about were STDs, smoking and drinking, giving into peer pressure, and how hard raising a child before marriage is.”  ~ Middle School Student
