Program areas at OppNet

During our 2017-2018 fiscal year, we served 770 students in our Fellows programs and more than 2,000 through our Career Fluency Partnerships with youth-serving organizations and schools. Our founding Fellows program is an intensive six-year program that works with New York City public high school students from the summer after 10th grade through to college graduation. OppNets growth has been met with remarkable results far exceeding national trends: 92% of OppNet Fellows graduate from college within six years over 90% of whom will be the first in their families to do so and 90% secure meaningful employment or graduate school admission within six months of college graduation. Additionally, OppNet drives national student impact through Career Fluency Partnerships, which builds capacity for schools and youth-serving organizations across the country looking to boost college and career readiness in their young people.
