The OWE program is designed to build self-esteem and encourage the participant toward success. Classes are Saturdays at Riverside Community College, Riverside Campus. The parent’s participation in the program is mandatory. The sessions for the participants encompass: Physical training and drills, life skills, educational tours, and community service.
