Description: 

This year’s District Project is Opportunity for All (OFA). OFA addresses the disadvantaged and works to combat their obstacles as well as providing new opportunities. Whether it is through education, the arts, or athletics, OFA is about allowing people to explore and cultivate new skills to offer a brighter future. 

Why OFA? 

Many do not realize how much other’s environments affect them; whether it is socioeconomic, familial issues, etc. service alone will not tend to these problems. Therefore, OFA is about offering resources to the underprivileged in order to create new avenues for their future. We will use the media to advocate for the importance of expanding one’s repertoire and serving the community by providing various services. There are many ways to address this ever-expanding issue and it can be altered according to one’s community. The Texas-Oklahoma Key Club District members can work together to give people a fighting chance.
