Open Connections is the environment where our children feel safe and free to take risks. There has never been a day that our children have not wanted to attend OC. They always want to go to this place where they feel comfortable, happy, challenged and engaged. In their words, they love that they get to "choose what [they] want to do," and there are so many choices and new experiences waiting. Walking into Open Program is a special event for anyone. Every which way you turn there are things to explore, discoveries to make and young people all around in small groups together engaged in important work. It's not difficult to see why anyone would want to spend their days and years growing here.
