Choices hopes to inspire other Rebels to make good choices. We bring awareness to the dangers of drug/alcohol abuse and well as educate students on the warning signs of depression/suicide, the effects of bullying and other destructive behavior.
We pick several themes throughout the course of the year that brings awareness to an issue young people face. Last year we had a successful suicide awareness campaign and are now working on getting approval for a sexual health campaign this year. We fundraise and volunteer every year. In the past we have raised funds for the NICU at Lurie Children's, the Partnership for Drug-Free America and volunteer every year at Feed My Starving Children. This year we also raised funds for the American Cancer Society and participated in this year's Relay For Life.
Fundraising for non-profit organizations, volunteer work, advocacy and awareness of important teen issues
