Our Piece of the Pie (OPP) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping 14 to 24 year-old urban youth become economically independent adults. OPP's unique model is centered around the personal, intense and consistent relationship developed between each youth and a caring, committed and proactive adult staff member. That relationship helps participants identify and overcome barriers, access support services and programs, and achieve the goals of high school graduation, a college degree and/or vocational certification and rewarding post-education employment. Founded in 1975, OPP provided high school, community college and community-based programs to 850 young people in five Connecticut communities last year. For more information, please visit www.OPP.org.
