Work Readiness Program
Beginning with an interview that assesses skill gaps, we help people develop a plan for employment in construction, manufacturing, metalworking, marine trade, Information Technology, and health care. The program includes career counseling, résumé writing, and interview preparation. We can also refer individuals for courses in English as a Second Language (ESL).
Information Technology (IT) Training
In partnership with IntraCity Geeks, OIC provides an immersive, hands-on, ten-week training program leading to computer science certification and placement in IT jobs such as Full Stack Web Developer.
Minority Business Enterprise
OIC helps build the capacity of MBE contractors in many ways:
- Instruction in many aspects of construction: math, reading construction drawings, estimating, and leadership
- Business promotion
- Lead remediation certification training
- Joint venture development
Urban Policy Institute
The Urban Policy Institute is OIC’s research arm which identifies needs in our service communities. Armed with this research, OIC members work with state and local influencers to address those needs.
