CHOICES Education Group, headquartered in Seattle, WA, trains volunteers to deliver the interactive CHOICES workshop to 8th-graders across the country. The workshop makes the case for staying in school and teaches skills for success including time management, decision-making, and goal-setting.
To date, more than 6 million teenage students have participated in CHOICES. Many Brighton Jones employees, including CEO Jon Jones, have enjoyed delivering the teacher-approved curriculum in local schools.
By partnering with CHOICES, Brighton Jones intends to increase our impact within our communities while creating more robust volunteer opportunities for our colleagues and clients. CHOICES will benefit from the partnership by leveraging our team’s expertise in financial literacy education and our MESI (Mindfulness-based Emotional and Social Intelligence) training as new classroom workshop offerings.
We welcome Leo Muller, CHOICES executive director since 1996, to the Brighton Jones team. We look forward to working with him and the talented board of directors to help even more of our community live a richer life.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to learn more, request a workshop at a school, or volunteer as a classroom presenter. A new, virtual classroom format is available in January 2021.
Molly Norton is the philanthropic advisor at Brighton Jones. Laura Tarbutton serves as the philanthropic program manager.
