Opportunity Partnership Program (OPP)
This Opportunity Partnership Program connects industry professionals with community college students attending health care, manufacturing, and welding programs.
The program’s goal is to increase students’ confidence and job search skills, expand their knowledge about their career choices, develop their network of contacts, and prepare them to quickly transition to, and succeed in, a job within their field.
nConnect organizes and conducts career readiness workshops at both Clark and Lower Columbia Colleges. Students learn resume and cover letter writing skills, practice job interviewing with community volunteers, and engage with professionals from their field of interest. Students are also paired with industry mentors for individual guidance and job shadowing.
