OK programs are the lifeblood of the organization, it is through our programs that we constantly find ways to provide education, community values and activity to our Warriors.
Past programs like After Opps and Life Shop have found their way into other aspects of our organization. As we have worked hard through this pandemic we have built our main programs on two platforms:
Our main OK on-site programs allow our warriors to safely engage with our staff as they focus on the themes of Life Skills, Wellness, Recreation & Current Events, Social & Staying Connected, and Science & Nature. In addition, we have another fun on-site program returning, the W2RC [Walk to Run Club].
With the uncertainty of the pandemic, we have been able to brush up on our online presence and flesh out a completely virtual platform for our other OK programs!
OUR PLATFORM OF ON-SITE & VIRTUAL PROGRAMS
SESSION THEME | This session, our theme will be All About Me. Our Summer semester theme is titled “All About Me”. Warriors and staff together will explore their personal interests in life, leisure, arts, food, and community favs to visit. They will take time to experience each other’s go-to for fun and will learn more about each other along the way – hoping to find common interests along the way!
walk, roll and run!
