I have attended several programs and events offered by Omni Youth Programs and have always been extremely impressed with the programs they provide. I leave their events with tips and skills that are a extremely useful to me professionally and personally. Omni Youth Programs excells at helping parents navigate the teen years and do a tremendous job of giving my teen useful and practical tools that help them avoid peer pressure.
A well trained group of counselors comes to my class once a week for four weeks and works with my 4th grade students on resisting peer pressure. The children value their time with these adults. They are positive role models and were able to relate very well to the children.
