The C.H.O.I.C.E.S Experience

The Image Initiative, Inc., in conjunction with it's partners, presents the C.H.O.I.C.E.S (Creating Heightened Opportunities in Community, Environment, and Self) Experience.This series of skill development and life enhancement workshops, institutes and literary forums take place within Syracuse University and the local Syracuse community. Workshop topics include but are not limited to: higher education, community activism, self-development, literacy, financial management and performance art.

These skill development and life enhancement workshops are for young women of color between the ages of 13 and 18 who demonstrate promise despite challenging environments and attend Syracuse City Schools and local community centers. Workshops are designed to stimulate critical thought, supply outlets, introduce our young women to aspects of life they may not ordinarily be accustomed to, and provide them with tools to be productive and contributing members to society. Our young women also acquire leadership and professional development skills. The role models and individuals they come in contact with are instrumental in their relationship and capacity building.

If you are interested in participating in the C.H.O.I.C.E.S Experience please contact Afua Boahene at and Tanesha Cameron-Cole at Be sure to put CHOICES in the subject area.
