Friends of OPY

When we heard Coach Al was forming a Non-Profit, SaveOPY Inc., we decided to pull our resources together and assist Coach Al on his quest.

The Goal of this campaign is to take SaveOPY from part time after work to a full time venture. 

In the past as a sales manager for a multi-million dollar electronics distribution company, he earned a reputation for using “Honey” instead of “Vinegar” to encourage his salespeople to meet and exceed their potential. While his youngest was in Middle School he saw there were teens that could benefit by utilizing his training techniques so he developed a program around his professional experience. He is currently working with teens individually and in groups. With the assistance of his son, they have developed an Assembly/Workshop to work with larger groups of teens.


Friends of OPY is just that, Friends of Our Promising Youth and championing the efforts Coach Al to empower youths and young adults to make positive changes in their life.

To get a better idea of his quest, take the time to check out his site,
