Project Choices program focuses on alcohol, sex and birth control for young women

The Project Choices program has been offered in Winnipeg, Manitoba since September 2010. Originally based on a program developed in the United States in the 1990s, it has continued to evolve to meet the needs of the community.

You can check out the recently launched website which includes FAQs and a great Links section. While the website is targeted at young women, it also includes information for service providers.

Project CHOICES is an FASD prevention program that works with girls/women of any age who are not currently pregnant, drink alcohol, and are sexually active. The goal of the program is to reduce the risk of an alcohol-exposed pregnancy through choosing healthy behaviours around alcohol and birth control use. Program partners include Klinic Community Health Centre, Norwest Co-op Community Health, and Healthy Child Manitoba.
