dco_marchbWeb on Mission Marketplace is partnering with Decisions, Choice & Options, DCO, for the months of March and April. DCO exists to provide education for teens and the adults who care about them, regarding the decisions that come along with teen pregnancy. Using current, factual data on each of the three options — abortion, adoption, and parenting — they help students gain a better understanding of the short and long term effects of each choice.

They currently provide education through these primary avenues:

– Educational presentations to teens. We visit high school classrooms and youth groups, providing information about each of the options a young woman faces in an unplanned pregnancy, and explore how those options will affect not only her, but her child, the father and others.

– Targeted Curriculum for use in middle schools and high school classrooms.

– Broadcast, Print and Social Media interviews.

– Training for crisis pregnancy centers to use DCO’s curriculum.

On a side note, I am super proud to partner with Joi Wasill the founder of DCO. As a past student of hers, I have the upmost respect for her journey and ministry. It is an honor to partner with her and support DCO with a percentage of the sales from each of our stores. Visit the Marketplace page for a list of stores supporting DCO.
