Today, high school students find college and career readiness opportunities by visiting their counselors or combing through countless online postings for college students or high school graduates. We know that current high school students want to pursue work-based learning experiences to build their resumes and learn critical skills, but this is difficult due to the lack of a centralized directory for them to browse. That's why we stepped up and started aggregating these opportunities to create a single source that high school students around the country can utilize to pursue their goals. The goal of Oppti is to empower the youth by helping them find opportunities to grow and create impact in the world!
We want all high schools to know that we work to support their goal of helping students prepare for the future. When students volunteer and complete internships, they experience many benefits, including:
increased chances of college admission
enhanced preparation for the work force
great improvements in leadership and soft skills
satisfaction of graduation requirements
