THE OPPORTUNITY LEAGUE creates opportunities that build community health. Our unique approach to public health supports the positive growth of individuals, families and communities.
OUR 10 YEAR JOURNEY
Did you know The O League began in 2009 with a friendly basketball game to raise money for the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign? Well, ten years later, our passion and commitment to serve our community has not changed, TOL currently serves over 300 families annually in the Greater Burlington area.
What began in a 40 square foot office has transitioned into operations now being held in 2500 square ft. building outfitted with a digital arts and media studio, two conference rooms, computer lab, kitchen, student lounge and several offices. As our organization grows, we are proud to provide programs for all ages that foster creativity, discovery, leadership and compassion.
TOL gave me a family, guided me through life, helped me find my passion, and taught me how to help myself. Before I came to TOL I was unsure about my future. Now my nonprofit provides mentorship and the same confidence TOL gave me, for others.
Both Mrs. Shenee and Coach O have the community’s best interest for real. I have been a student in the Next Steps: College Prep program for 2 years and discovered so much including what colleges I want to attend.
Coach O created an opportunity for me to compete in basketball in high school. I would then go on to be a 1000 point scorer at my school but more important I discovered you can truly create the world you’d like to see.
