A Clinical Professional Counselor supervises the students and all utilize the expertise of the department's Ph.D. level consultant.

Community Outreach

The community outreach faction of the department is how we stay connected to the community and attempt to actively participate in the various domains of human involvement. We operate "Alternative to Detention groups in the local high schools. We actively participate in The Lion's Club functions, such as "Haunted Woods". The department works collaboratively with the Orland Park Police Department to provide quality programming such as the annual "Cosmic Bowl", and the "Get to Know Us, Get to Know You Barbecue".
