Community Service


OLC provides youth with the skills and education to help them make positive choices. Activities also provide an opportunity for participants to form relationships with adults and peers, as well as to develop and practice communication, teamwork, and problem-solving skills.

OLC builds:

Youth earn points for participation during the school year, and those with the highest points earn participation in special activities including ski days. Monthly events include activities like rock climbing, snowboarding, and camping. Multiple-day excursions like the Utah climbing trip in June is a capstone adventure encompassing all the skills learned throughout the year.
