2nd Opp in Your Facility
617A5176.jpg

The 2nd Opportunity Program consists of five video based courses focused on employment readiness, financial literacy, life skills, career paths and barriers to re-entry. Upon completion of each course, students receive a certificate of achievement. Learn more information about our one-of-a kind program here.

Depending on your preferred delivery method, we have the option to incorporate supplemental programs: groups of courses to target a range of issues from high school equivalency preparation and substance abuse, to parenting and mental health. We can also assist in implementing a high school equivalency testing program by liaising with your local educational institutes.

Delivery Methods

The 2nd Opportunity Program is available in both English and Spanish and can be customized to address a facility’s specific needs. Our options of self-paced or group classes (or both!) allow us to meet the needs of both facilities and individuals in a secure and productive fashion.
