Scaling Career Fluency®: Making Good on the Promise of College

Commitment by

The New York Opportunity Network

In 2016, The Opportunity Network (OppNet) committed to finding field-wide solutions to fill a national gap in college success and career readiness by expanding the reach of its Career Fluency® program from serving 2,000 low-income, first-generation, college bound students in New York City to 100,000 students nationwide. Over three years Oppnet will expand its six-year Fellows program, replicating in new geographic locations, scale its Career Fluency® Consultancy to 90 schools and community-based organizations nation-wide to amplify existing college access investments, and develop and launch a digital Career Fluency® Portal for educators and students to access OppNet’s best-in-class Career Fluency® curriculum anyplace with access to a computer and Internet. The three coordinated strategies accelerate college and career impact by connecting entities across sectors and through direct service, field-wide capacity building and virtual programming allowing OppNet to scale its data-driven impact across the nation.
