Open Program

For many youth, the Open Connections experience begins in the Open Program and starts with the belief that people are natural learners. In this program youth drive their own learning. They are given a great deal of FREEDOM in how, and with whom, they spend their day. These days can also be a youth’s first experience with INDEPENDENCE and the facilitators support each young person as they navigate this new experience. Because we recognize the richness and value that VERTICAL AGE GROUPS provide, this program spans multiple years and youth are typically enrolled for several years, giving them the opportunities to be inspired by older youth and be a leader to younger youth.

The Open Program provides each youth EXPOSURE to a variety of materials, tools, and activities, because sometimes “we don’t know what we don’t know” and it can be helpful to be introduced to something new. This experience affords youth both the time and the space to be tinkerers, explorers, friends, and creators.
