About The Opportunity Network
The Opportunity Network (OppNet) connects high school and college students from historically and systematically underrepresented communities to career opportunities, professional networks, and college success. One hundred percent of students graduate from college and 85 percent secure meaningful employment or graduate school admission within six months of graduation.
OppNet accomplishes this through its founding OppNet Fellows Program, an intensive six-year experience for students beginning in the summer after their sophomore year aimed at honing their passions and skills to get through college and launch the careers of their choice. OppNet also houses Career Fluency® Partnerships, OppNet’s national capacity-building program centered on its best-in-class Career Fluency® curriculum to amplify college and career outcomes for partner institutions.
