For Alejandro Rivera, it was stepping through the doors of Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow for the first time.
A high school dropout and soon-to-be teen father, Alejandro came to OBT determined to provide a better life for his family. Using the skills he acquired at OBT, Alejandro landed a job at Chase Bank. Read his story here
You can be the defining moment for others just like Alejandro.
