OPP’s unique model is centered on the personal and consistent relationship developed between each youth and a caring, committed and proactive adult staff member called a Youth Development Specialist. Every young receives an individualized success plan which includes an integrated, individualized set of support services in youth development, Academic Achievement and workforce readiness.
Our Youth Development programs are centered around working individually to support youth when problems arise in order to build competencies to demonstrate healthy habits and connections to the community.
Our Academic Achievement programs focus on granting access to services including: diploma-granting programs, tutoring, homework help and test-taking strategies along with college preparation such as assistance with applications, financial aid workshops, and college tours.
Our Workforce Readiness programs work with our young people to help them prepare for their future careers. These programs include access to service learning programs, career competencies trainings, and financial capability.
