CHOICES Education Group is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with 35 years of experience in helping teens make positive decisions to increase their career and life opportunities.

By Molly Norton and Laura Tarbutton

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.

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.
