CHOICES: Explore Your Post‑Secondary Options Through Our 1‑Week Program

  • Academic upgrading student
  • Have questions about the CHOICES program?

  • Discover your post‑secondary path with our tuition‑free, 5‑day CHOICES program.

    Life has ups and downs for lots of different reasons. Sometimes people aren’t sure what they want to do next. Our CHOICES program helps you take a step back to ask questions, like  “Who am I? ” and “What will make me happy?”.

    CHOICES helps you learn about yourself and set goals for the future:

    1. You’ll work in a small group setting and participate in activities and reflective exercises.
    2. You’ll have a chance to write a personal values statement, explore careers and educational pathways, and set personal goals.
    3. Guest speakers from George Brown will talk to you about the supports available to help you with postsecondary education.

    By the end of the week, you’ll have a clear action plan and our two coaches will help you move to your next steps.
