Armed with a desire to proactively support Atlanta teens, the Dover Training Institute launched CHOICES: Youth Leadership and Violence Prevention Program.
Supported in part by Fulton Country and operating from Tri Cities High School, the primary goal of CHOICES is to strengthen teen’s connection to their own identity, culture and community. Additionally, CHOICES aims to help adolescents better understand how school violence hurts both the individual and community.
Working alongside school administrators and volunteer counselors, Dover Training Institute created a curriculum that teaches students peer mediation strategies so they are better equipped to handle conflicts when they arise. They also engage in leadership activities that are designed to identify and enhance their leadership potential.
Since its launch in 2005, CHOICES has reached more than 200 Atlanta-area young adults. In 2010, the program expanded to include a summer leadership program.
For college students interested in serving as facilitators, course credits may be available. In addition, corporate groups and individual volunteers are also welcome.
