(From OpNet's Web site):
The mission of OpNet is to bridge the "digital divide" by:
- promoting economic opportunities for low-income young adults;
- increasing the involvement of women and people of color in the digital economy; and
- helping to meet the growing demand for skilled multimedia workers.
Founded in 1997, OpNet is the first program in the United States to effectively build upon the creativity among young adults to prepare them for careers in the rapidly expanding multimedia industry. OpNet is a compelling national model that forges a strong business-community partnership to benefit both the multimedia industry and disadvantaged youth. OpNet was founded and is fiscally sponsored by Local Economic Assistance Program, Inc. (LEAP), the non-profit affiliate of Community Bank of the Bay.
