For Youth
For Educators and Administrators

Opportunity Knocks recognizes that the world we live in is increasingly competitive and demanding - and likely will become more so in the years to come. We know that reading, writing, and arithmetic are core skills essential to prepare youth for the workforce. Opportunity Knocks offers programs to prepare the education community and youth to achieve their maximum potential in areas that enhance the classroom curriculum.

For youth

Our unique programs reinforce the classroom basic fundamentals, while simultaneously building important skills. We have developed innovative programs that introduce youth to the skills and talents they will use throughout their lives. This includes skills such as planning, time management, leadership, teamwork, and effective communication.

Our carefully structured programs integrate a youth's strengths and interests within a framework they can use to build workforce and life competencies. As a result, the participants can demonstrate their self-sufficiency, leadership and critical thinking abilities, and readiness to conquer the challenges of tomorrow.

For educators and administrators

We are experienced at building the skills of teachers and administrators so they can be most effective, and serve as role models for youth.

We believe it is important to work with the entire educational system, and that youth often models the behaviors of their teachers and administrators. When our youth are exposed on a day-to-day basis to effective organizations with solid teamwork, good communication, and strong planning - they are best positioned to learn these skills.
