What we do
Great Opportunities opens the door for underserved youth to increase their knowledge about their aquatic environment, grow their life skills and experience leadership through swimming, beach programs, environmental awareness, and transportation.
Learn to Swim
Aquatic Safety, Environmental Education and Recreation are core components in Great Opportunities’ 4-week long summer program.
GO2 Bike Program
GO2 anywhere on a bike, the beach, the mountains, the desert.
GO2 participants learn how to ride a bike and safely navigate the local roads and bike trails, personal responsibility, problem solving skills, leadership skills, attention to detail, proper tool use, and especially team-work and community service.
The Ocean Begins at Your Front Door - “The El Plastiki Crew”
We only have one Earth so Great Opportunities believes “Every Day is Earth Day”. On the 2nd Saturday of each month from 9:30 am until 12:30 pm, Great Opportunities hosts the El Plastiki Crew trash removal. Trash from your front door will enter the street, then the storm system, creeks and rivers, and then the ocean, GO will supply rubber gloves, trash bags, and trash wands.
