ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Every choice you make has a consequence, some positive, some negative. That's a message an Albany group is trying to get across to kids.

Phoebe's Network of Trust is working with students to get them to make good choices first. Next week, they'll present middle school students with a choice maze.

They'll live out different scenarios and the rewards that come from the positive decisions they make and the negative consequences of poor choices.  Eddie McBride said, "It's a very impressionable time, so if we can get them a little bit of background and allow them to live out these experiences, it's something that will stay with them through high school and the rest of their lives."

The students will see the consequences of dropping out of school and having unprotected sex. The Get a life teen maze will take place at Albany State next Tuesday and Wednesday.
