OEA Choice Trust

Inspiring schools to create healthy
workplaces for all staff

ABOUT OEA CHOICE TRUST

OEA Choice Trust is dedicated to promoting the total well-being of Oregon public school employees. We believe that all school employees, no matter their role, should have the support they need to be well – physically, emotionally and socially.  Healthy worksites reduce employees’ stress, boost energy and morale and promote better balance in life – a win for all staff and students.

WHAT WE DO

We think of our work as a journey to wellbeing that includes:

  • Grants, scholarships and professional development for customized employee wellness programs for Oregon public k-12 districts, education service districts and community colleges.
  • Resources that include technical assistance, trainings, professional development and coaching that are based on healthy worksite best practices.
  • A statewide conference and other gatherings. These bring together school employees, health advocates and educators to create healthy workplaces; network with each other; and learn how to connect their colleagues and communities to the benefits of school employee wellness programs.
