Our Mission

Opportunities For Youth is a non-profit corporation that provides scholarships, mentoring, and technology solutions to at-risk, underserved youth.


Our Vision

Our vision is a world in which all marginalized children have access to tools and technology that can provide them the opportunity to excel in school society, and the communities in which they live.

Our History

In the summer of 2020 former football teammates from University High School in West Los Angeles decided to team up and start a non-profit organization that focuses on underserved youth.  The goal was to provide tools and other solutions to help stem the cycle of poverty and systemic racism in our inner cities.  


We are a 100% volunteer organization.  There are no salaries paid and all of our expenses are paid for by our Board of Directors.  100% of all donations and grants go to deserving recipients.
