The Opportunity Network
Founded by two Yale graduates in 2002 and funded by blue-chip backers, The Opportunity Network seeks to equal the playing field for high-achieving, underserved high school and college students by creating access for them to career opportunities, professional networks and college. We believe influential networks are essential ingredients for success not emphasized in career development programs for youth, so we take an innovative approach by underscoring the power of personal connections and professional relationships as vital complements to skills and experience. Through unique interaction with executives, intensive networking training, coursework in careers, internships and college counseling, our students dramatically change the course of their futures.
