ALBANY, GA - (WALB) -

Hundreds of middle schoolers step out of the classroom to get learn some important life lessons.     

Students from area middle schools entered the "Get a Life" Teen Maze at Albany State University Wednesday.     

The interactive simulation presents kids with difficult situations. They see how their decisions might impact their lives.     

When they make poor choices, the maze leads them to consequences such as jail time, sexually transmitted diseases, pregnancy, and even death.  

"The goal of this, it's just to a tool to help kids think about the decisions they make and the consequences that come with making negative decisions and the rewards that come with positive decisions," said Project coordinator Eddie McBride.  

Volunteers from area organizations helped students make the right decisions.  The two-day event is sponsored by Phoebe's Network of Trust.
