Overcoming Obstacles (O2) is a curriculum designed to truly capture the slogan “Building Strength Through Obstacles”. O2 is a group format using experiential learning to target school-aged kids ‘at-risk’ or identified for emotional or behavioral concerns. The program can be tailored to different age groups and target specific concerns as applicable. O2 engages kids in a fun and active environment while encouraging them to make connections between the obstacles they face at The Warrior Factory and any obstacles they may face at home, in the school, or the community.
School personnel are encouraged to be active participants in providing information to tailor session content and, as available, participate in sessions to provide feedback and assist participants in making connections that promote insight, problem-solving, and mastery. O2 will be co-facilitated by highly qualified staff. Luke Sworts is a Masters level clinician with over 7 years of experience running groups in school and community settings. Luke will be joined by a veteran in the ninja community who provides an additional lens of personal experience, as well as competency in personal training to ensure the physical safety of all participants.
