Opportunity Resource Services was founded in 2010 with the goal of alleviating poverty in rural communities by providing more opportunities for education, access, and exposure for first generation, low income youth. Our values are still at the heart of everything we do today, as ORS continues to expand our reach to serve more people who are underrepresented in programs of higher education.
Access & Exposure
We provide those we serve with access to resources and exposure to new opportunities.
We seek to inspire our clients to reach their goals by providing essential knowledge, teaching them to utilize technology and expanding their worldview.
Open & Honest Communication
Communication and transparency with those we serve and other members of the community enables us to build confidence in the organization and create lasting relationships. Both internally and externally, our communication is clear, purposeful and inclusive.
We are committed to provide long term investments in local communities by providing resources and opportunities for constituents to achieve educational, financial and personal success. We partner with like-minded organizations to achieve mutual goals with the highest efficiency and effectiveness.
Achievement & Accountability
We constantly work to prove ourselves, our programs, and the way we work. We set goals and rely on each other. We celebrate our accomplishments and learn from failure. We take the lead on projects and work together to drive them to completion.
Collaborative & Creative Teamwork
A positive and progressive workplace creates opportunities for learning, teamwork, organizational growth and personal fulfillment. We tackle tough problems together. We laugh, have fun, and enjoy our work.

Equity & Inclusion
At ORS, we are intentional about considering equity in all we do. Every team member should apply an equity filter when making decisions, managing operations, and solving problems.
We seek to have authentic and honest conversations about equity to deepen empathy, expand understanding, and acknowledge each other’s unique perspectives.
We want all team members to take ownership of equity throughout ORS and actively promote equity and justice.
We want ORS’s policies, programs, and activities to identify and eliminate discrimination and barriers to access, particularly for communities of color.
We are committed to the just and equitable disbursement of resources.
