Staten Island Tech Seniors Create OpportuniTeens Website
OpportuniTeens was created when co-founders Cynthia Lei and Yong Yan (Crystal) Liang wanted to increase student awareness in college and career readiness programs. They aim to supplement the schools’ efforts in promoting opportunities for students. They have a website that is a database of available internships, volunteering events, and other job opportunities.
With the unexpected pandemic, they saw that there was a need for virtual student programs over the summer and during the school year. Since starting, they have established an account on Instagram and Facebook to promote remote opportunities that students can participate in, and remain productive during this time. In August, they launched their flagship website (https://opportuniteens.org/) dedicated to guiding students in their high school journey and beyond.
