The organization has a fantastic mission and its students are driven and professional. Volunteer events are also fun and engaging, and for the few I have attended, I've left inspired and hope to be involved more in the future.
I volunteered with OppNet's students for their March Speed Networking. Students were so professional and the session was very organized.
I look forward to attending an event in the future, as the organization is run smoothly and it's great being able to connect with the students and contribute to their professional growth.
The Opportunity Network is always a joy to volunteer for. The students are so motivated and the events are well organized. Glad to be able to help!
The staff at Opp Net were incredibly supportive and helpful. They seem to do a lot to ensure that their interns are well placed and taken care of, but they were also careful that they were well placed, that the relationship between intern and organization was a good match.
One intern worked out so well that I am trying to figure out how I can hire her when she graduates from college this summer!
I have been involved with The Opportunity Network as a volunteer college essay coach and networking partner for over two years. This organization is amazing - and so are the students it serves. Every time I leave an event at OppNet, I feel more positive about the future of our world if it is in the hands of these students. The experiences Opportunity Network provides are thorough, rigorous, and engaging. I've been a lifelong volunteer at a number of organizations; OppNet is one of the very best.
When it comes to networking for the youth, the Opp Network hits the nail on the head. They are committed to supporting youth across the boroughs of NYC, creating several events to engage participants (both students and sponsors).
Great opportunities for students to develop early professional/career skills. Really proud to be a mentor/volunteer with this group
I am currently an OppNet College Fellow and on the Student Board of Directors, Class of 2019, and without the great support and immense love from the OppNet staff, I would not be attending college right now! The Opportunity Network has opened all sort of doors and pathways for me through college admissions, summer internships, mentors and developing a sense of professional development for the workforce. The expansion of The Opportunity Network, both in staff and students, displays the great success it has on supporting low-income, first generation students achieve their goals in high school, college and beyond!
