CHOICES (version1.02c) is an interactive multimedia program designed to help teenagers explore their options when they are ready to leave high school. Topics covered include:
The examples of past movements for social change (labor, anti-war, suffrage, civil rights and ecology) are illustrated with music and historical photographs and include references for further reading.
This program is ideal for high school career centers, classrooms, youth groups and libraries.
Community organizers seeking to counter the presence of military recruiters in schools are permitted to duplicate and distribute it locally (postcard registration is required). The program is being made available free via the Internet with assistance from the Institute for Global Communications (http://www.igc.org). (The program is also available from Project YANO on disk, along with a small poster, for a $5 materials/shipping fee.)
