Executive Director,
Transformational Opportunities

Transformational Opportunities exists to create and establish a variety of opportunities suitable for individuals and families who need a significant, positive, and permanent change in their lives. While there are many opportunities for individuals to get help in their school work or to develop athletic skills in team sports, there are precious few opportunities for individuals and families to receive skills training specifically targeted to help meet stated goals. Current operations include cognitive skills training through TransformED, scholarships for targeted skills training, and economic development programs for individuals graduating from substance abuse rehab and other economically margenalized groups.
