Opportunity4Kids: A Program to Help Arizona’s Youth

Growing up is harder than it looks, as adults we can often forget that. Afterschool programs like theater, sports, and clubs go a long way toward making life better for the children and teens they serve. But the high cost of these activities can keep some kids from pursuing their passions. For this reason, the brothers behind Van Norman Law also founded a nonprofit organization that helps Scottsdale youth pay for afterschool activities.

Afterschool Programs Benefit Children for a Lifetime

There are so many benefits for children and teens who attend and participate in after school activities. Be it sports, dance, theater, or competitive robotics, these activities offer the lifelong benefits of learning to socialize and work with others.

Afterschool programs can help kids and teens:

  • Alleviate stress through participation and socialization
  • Learn new skills and build self-confidence 
  • Find safe places to go after school
  • Find a safe outlet for their frustrations
  • Build social skills and make friends outside of school
  • Improve their time management skills
  • Learn about school topics in a different way

How O4K Arizona Helps Children Succeed 

Unfortunately, many children cannot participate in activities outside of school because their families cannot afford the extra cost. Equipment, uniforms, costumes, traveling for competitions, and so on—afterschool activities often come with a long list of things that need to be paid for. Families who are struggling financially might need to make difficult decisions, like keeping their child out of extracurricular activities.

Opportunity4Kids provides children and teens who need financial assistance with the funds to cover things like club fees, uniforms, and equipment. Their mission is to even the playing field so that children from all backgrounds have an equal opportunity to participate in afterschool activities and further their potential. 

These programs can help children build a foundation that will last them their whole lives. Helping to create safe, encouraging, and educational spaces for children is the backbone of our organization. It would not be possible without the generosity of people like you.
