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.

We think of our work as a journey to well-being 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, training, professional development and coaching that are based on healthy work site 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.


We provide expertise and resources to help Oregon public school employees create comprehensive and flexible wellness programs to build a culture of wellness that becomes the norm in school workplaces. We prioritize quality service and partnerships that support a journey to wellness.


All Oregon public school employees are healthy, resilient and engaged as champions for healthy school environments and vital communities. As a result, they are fulfilled in their work, model health for students and are better equipped to foster student success.


OEA Choice Trust has become the go-to source for employee wellness in schools.  Healthier employees. More successful students.  Flourishing communities.  Believe it or not, a little school employee wellness goes a long way in achieving all three of these.  While wellness might seem like a simple concept – and it is really – sometimes it takes a little helping hand to get if off the ground.
