  • Resource Choices: Learning to understand financial management and how it is related to everyday adult experiences, e.g. budgeting, credit, taxes, and investments.
  • Personal Choices: Exploring individual choices when it comes to living a balanced, healthy life and how the decisions you make affect you on a personal level. Students will hear presentations on a variety of topics that include suicide prevention, human sexuality (anatomy, contraceptives, and STIs), and sexual assault.
