Who comes to OOL?
Moms, Dads, Sisters, Brothers, Teens, Babies, Grandparents, Caregivers
Anyone involved in doing life with a family will find a fit with Olive Orchard Lab. It is a safe place to seek, learn, grow, evolve and even fail. Above all else, people who love their family come to OOL. We believe that a family is a work in progress and a parent is the primary facilitator of growth.

What makes OOL a good fit for young adults (16-21)?
As our teenagers attend high school and move on to college and/or the work world they begin to exercise their own personal independence and utilize the skills they have gathered along the way. No matter the young adult, no matter the place and time, there will invariably be strengths that shine through and weaknesses that scream out. OOL’s Young Adult Semester Program provides support for this bright and talented age group. It is often deeply personal work that allows a safe space to discover and communicate awarenesses that are key to a lifetime of growth mindset. Yes, there is self-discovery, but more importantly there is accountability provided through the process. The young adult has promise and potential beyond compare. Work on life skills with Marcy is key to this process. Marcy guides and supports the growth by helping them through the process.
