Offered by the Counseling, Career and Disability Services Office at Penn College, Project Choice provides comprehensive career exploration for anyone wishing to forge a new career path.

The September classes will run from 5 to 9 p.m., Monday through Thursday, Sept. 19-29.

Project Choice provides an assessment of skills, abilities and personality style; structured career exploration and career-goal planning; workshops on goal-setting, prioritizing, decision-making, stress management, self-esteem and removing roadblocks; and information on training, education, financial aid and support services.
