what is muskegon opportunity?
Muskegon Opportunity is a community of volunteers (business, community, and education) working since 2006 to open the doors of opportunity through college or career training after high school. We help students start, stay, and succeed in college or other training programs.
WHY IS THIS PROGRAM NEEDED IN OUR COMMUNITY?
In today's world, young people cannot rely on good-paying manufacturing jobs to build their livelihoods and support their families. Students who do not pursue some kind of education after high school or who drop out are getting left behind.
Muskegon Opportunity . . . Start, Stay, and Succeed!
HOW IS MUSKEGON OPPORTUNITY ADDRESSING THIS CHALLENGE?
Muskegon Opportunity aims to help students prepare for and obtain access to post-secondary education by giving them the information and assistance they need to succeed.
