Gateway to Opportunity
Gateway to Opportunity connects young people in the Greater Portland area with meaningful, work-based learning opportunities. Through this program youth participate in learning-rich summer projects and develop and variety of in-demand 21st century skills. Gateway to Opportunity is led by Maine Youth Action Network, a program of The Opportunity Alliance. In 2019 and 2020, the Sustainability Office has served as a host site, working collaboratively with youth participants to co-develop climate change outreach and education campaigns.
More coming soon on completed projects. in the meantime, check out these stories about the young people's work:
