Since its inception the mission of Great Opportunities has been to provide under privileged kids the opportunity to see their potential and understand that they can achieve anything if they believe in themselves. Great Opportunities is about opening doors for children and exposing them to the possibilities; the decision is theirs, our job is to give them the tools they will need to achieve.
Great Opportunities offers swim lessons in beginning, intermediate, and advanced swim levels. In addition, participants are given the opportunity to be involved in a Beach Awareness Program. At the Beach Awareness Program, all participants are allowed full use of body boards and surf boards, and are given rashguards for skin protection. Great Opportunities also provides educational lectures regarding gang prevention, sewage, pollution, fisheries, and environmental awareness.
