Great Opportunities is a 501(c)3 charitable nonprofit #02-0553154      

Since its inception in 2002, the mission of Great Opportunities has been to provide underserved youth the opportunity to see their potential and understand that they can achieve anything if they believe in. Our mission focuses on high density low income neighborhoods in San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano which are located under the Orange County, California Gang Injunction zone. 

The vision of Great Opportunities is to create a safe and supportive environment in which youth can achieve a foundation of knowledge, skills, and experience by way of observation, education, and hands on involvement. We are solely reliant on the gracious DONATIONS from organization and individual like your selves.

We believe the aquatic world is the gateway to changing the life of at risk youth in South Orange County. Engaging children to take responsibility of their environment, their health, and their future,and change it for the better, is key to our success.  Your contributions help children become responsible citizens, successful adults, and patrons of healthy lifestyles.  Thank you for supporting the next generation of leaders.  If you or someone you know are interested in getting involved, please contact us at info@greatopps.org &  Facebook twitter instagram
