Opportunity Network Event

Monday night, I attended the Opportunity Network annual fundraiser.  I joined the Junior Board of this amazing organization this spring and I was thrilled to be able to take part in the annual fundraiser. 
 The event was so special and it was incredibly moving to hear directly from the students how much this organization and program has impacted their lives. It has provided them with opportunities and access to amazing mentors that they would otherwise not have access to. As one of the students put it, “The chances of me committing a crime or going to prison are higher than me being accepted to a college and actually attending.” This comment really puts things into perspective and at least for me, is the motivating factor to be involved in such a wonderful organization.
