About Us

Helping individuals looking to pursue a career in the performing art industry since July 2010. 

Who We Are

 

 
Opportunity 4 Entertainers & Performing Arts was founded in July of 2010 by a group of volunteers eager to assist the youth in the community as well as individuals looking to pursue a career in the performing arts industry. As proud members of various arts and nonprofit organizations such as the Mobile Chamber, Alabama State Council on the Arts, Mobile Arts Council, Alabama Association of Nonprofits and recipients of the 2022 Grind Awards for Non-Profit of the Year, we continue to be at the forefront of community engagement. Through initiatives like our 'Opportunities Day School Tour,' ‘Opportunities Day Grand Finale,’ 'MOB Music Festival,' 'Broadcast University,' and the 'Alabama Hip Hop Week Community Tour,' we connect with individuals of all ages, bringing cultures together and building stronger, more vibrant communities. Our journey is ongoing, and we actively seek community resource partners, sponsors, and organizations interested in collaborating to shape a brighter future for our communities
