The OPPORTUNITY Project
The OPPORTUNITY Project is __(Brand Name)__'s reason for existing. The reason we create custom drinkware for our customers is so that... we can fight for OPPORTUNITY.
What We Do
We're proud to be a place that prioritizes hiring refugees, with the hope of helping their new country become a home. A place where they can flourish and grow. The talent and work ethic within these communities who had to abruptly leave their homeland has SO MUCH to offer the American economy. Systemically we need to make sure we're offering them opportunities to participate in the economy... not just for their sake, but also for ours. We're fighting for the idea that everyone deserves an opportunity. The sad reality is that while society gives lip service to this idea, the truth of the matter is that huge swaths of people are excluded from economic opportunity every single day because they're excluded from the workforce.
We're doing our very best to create healthy work environments that go above and beyond to help include refugees in our hiring processes and invest in them once they're here.
How We Do It
By offering the highest-quality custom drinkware experience on the market. Need some custom product for your business, wedding, brewery or restaurant? You've landed at the right place. And here's the beautiful thing about it, is that you're investing in OPPORTUNITY alongside us by providing entry level manufacturing jobs. We go above and beyond to create an inclusive work environment for refugees. Various challenges exist for people in both of these groups to find work. And the challenges have nothing to do with ability, and everything to do with opportunity. It starts with things as simple as saying yes to an interview whereas many would say no. We're just beginning this journey of how to do it best (no part of us is claiming we've figured it out... just that we're trying).
Future investments that we hope to implement and experiment with are:
1. Summer English Classes
2. Budgeting/Financial Literacy Classes
3. Accessible Translators
4. Transportation Solutions and much more...
Thanks for believing in us early on. We're so grateful for the customers who believe in what we're striving for.
