Through a combination of life skill lessons, physical activity, shared success with new friends and community service over a period of 6 months, these teens gain skills and confidence to overcome adversity and remain engaged in the education system.
OTRT is delivered over two school terms by qualified professional social workers, educational and youth worker staff. It is delivered during school hours with the participants meeting for hiking and activities one day each week.
The first term primarily delivers structured evidenced based intervention to enhance the participant’s skills and target their need areas. The second term involves community service projects where participants gain repeated and irrefutable experiences of demonstrating their own personal value to the community and validating their personal growth journey.
