Opportunities Now

Opportunities Now | Action Athens
We are excited about our Opportunities Now program. We are trying a different approach to break the poverty cycle by focusing our efforts on those who are motivated to become self-sufficient. Unlike our other education / education-based programs, Opportunities Now does not have age or other qualifying restrictions. We are working side-by-side to support and mentor individuals who are committed to making strategic and long-term life changes by partnering with other service agencies, businesses and schools/colleges to participate in the success of changing lives. This is not a quick fix. How Does Opportunities Now Work? Each participant will receive an initial in-depth interview and counseling to help them identify their strengths and weaknesses and their life goals, only one of which is getting out of poverty. Next, our staff will help each participant create a detailed, step-by-step action plan to reach each of their short and long-term goals. When the participant agrees to the plan and signs a program contract, our staff will provide the following for each participant:
  • Follow up on at least a bi-weekly basis to discuss their progress and next steps;
  • A dedicated Mentor / Career Specialist;
  • Testing and counseling to identify personal and career choices for which they are most suited;
  • Life Skills classes including financial literacy, work readiness, individual growth, and decision making skills;
  • Ongoing budget, financial, rental and housing counseling;
  • Community service and internship opportunities;
  • Tutors for educational assistance, when needed; and
  • Help with identifying other opportunities available to reach their goals.
