The mission of Mother’s Choice is to join hands with the community to give hope and change life stories.  We have seen how powerful it is when our community works together to turn crisis into hope.  Everyone has a role to play, and everyone can make a difference.

At Mother’s Choice, we believe that even the youngest in our community can play an active role and when young people have the chance to serve their communities, everyone benefits!  Students gain skills necessary to succeed in school, in the workplace and in life, and the community develops strong, diverse groups of inspired and engaged young people.

Currently, we have opportunities for students to support our teams below:

Youth Leadership Council

Each generation brings with it change and at Mother’s Choice, we want to harness the vision and energy of schools and students and to provide them the chance to serve their community.  Started in 2015, the Mother’s Choice Youth Leadership Council is a youth centered advisory group designed to provide leadership development for student members as well as facilitate teamwork, build youth confidence and strengthen student skills with problem solving, creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration. Our program emphasizes authenticity, ethics and collaborative decision-making and enhances learning outside of the classroom.
