The Opportunity Network

About The Opportunity Network

The Opportunity Network (OppNet) levels the playing field for highly motivated students from low-income, underrepresented backgrounds by facilitating access to college, professional networks, and career opportunities. We believe that influential networks are an essential ingredient for success, and take an innovative approach by underscoring the power of personal connections and professional relationships as vital complements to education, skills, and work experience. Through intensive college access and success supports, network-building, interactions with professionals from a cross-section of industries, coursework in careers, and five summers of internships, our students fulfill their academic and professional potential and change the course of their futures.
