The New York Opportunity Network, Inc. (“OppNet”)

Posted on August 9, 2016

For renewed support for the Associate Director of Partnerships and Training in the Career Fluency® Partnerships program. OppNet has begun to meet the demand for career programming by delivering their Career Fluency curriculum to select schools and youth organizations. The curriculum has four components that maximize outcomes for college graduation and career success: 1) Career Awareness and Exposure; 2) Professional Etiquette and Skills; 3) Networks and Social Capital; and 4) College Guidance and Success. Using a “train-the-trainer” model, OppNet customizes and embeds the programming into partners’ existing college and career programs, thus building capacity within each partner agency. The Associate Director has expanded their capacity to take on new partners, advance the work with existing partners, and lend a critical eye to what works well and what is challenging about this work.
