The course co-ordinator was Gary McDermott who was working with the Bogside and Brandywell Health Forum.

Here are some of the reflections the boys made about the OCN course:

"The course gives you life skills and I would highly recommend it to others" (Tiernan O'Donnell)

"I would enjoy doing another OCN course because it is refreshing with a lot of engaging activities". (Shea Taylor)

"It is very good for your CV and you get to do activities outside of school like cycling, which is great fun". (Shane Cassidy).

"The course changed the way I look at things. I look at things now in a deeper manner". (Reece McCool)

"I enjoyed the OCN because you are out of the classroom setting sometimes". (Tim O'Donnell).
