OMNI provides prevention services to the community. Our efforts focus on education, awareness and policy development which promotes and supports the prevention of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs used by youth.
All Stars Program: All Stars Core is recognized by SAMHSA as a research-based model program. All Stars is interactive, thought-provoking, and fun and is ideal for fourth to eighth graders that have never used substances, come from low-socio-economic families, and/or have English as their second language. It is designed for delivery in classrooms as well as in community and after-school settings. All Stars is a two year program and involves parents’ commitment, idealism, bonding and parental attentiveness – that have been found to prevent alcohol, tobacco use, other drugs, and violence.
Youth Mentor Program (YMP): Mentoring is a structured and trusting relationship that brings younger people together with caring adults who offer guidance through role modeling, support and encouragement aimed at developing competencies and character in the youth. The Youth Mentor Program assigns an adult volunteer to work one-on-one with a youth between the ages of 10-17. The Youth Mentor Program follows a monthly curriculum that is incorporated into all sessions. Monthly topics include: violence and aggression, community skills, self esteem, alcohol awareness, and stress and coping skills.
