Coaching Process

Our coaching process at Opportunity Inc. is thoughtfully crafted to optimize the reinforcement of students' skills. We employ a comprehensive coaching approach involving structured steps to ensure the effective application of classroom learning in real-world contexts.

In 2016, Opportunity Inc. trained a team comprised of teens and young adults to conduct a community needs assessment survey to see how we could achieve maximum social impact with our flagship residential construction training program, titled , “From the Ground Up “ for future generations. The survey results were profound and led to the expansion of our flagship program into the four unique programs that we currently offer.
