To provide youth increased opportunities for personal, educational, and vocational success.
OTTP-SF believes in “Healing through Doing”; the division provides Bay Area youth with holistic, client-centered services that enhances their personal, educational, and vocational skillsets. Services include occupational therapy, vocational preparation including job readiness and skill building, job referrals and placement, and vocational assessments, transition planning for transitional-aged youth, case management, psychotherapy, resource development, and after-care services. Uniquely, OTTP-SF offers a therapeutic yoga program to youth and their families, incorporating emotional regulation skills and mindfulness alongside restorative yoga poses and breathwork. OTTP-SF works to help youth recognize their unique strengths and facilitates opportunities for youth to explore their interests and identify personal priorities, including both practical and leisure activities to more subtle activities such as cultivating empathy or identifying values. OTTP-SF aims to empower youth through honoring their voice and choice throughout the services and treatment options they choose to receive, allowing youth to reach their maximum potential and succeed at home, in school, and in their community.
