• THE CHALLENGE

    The U.S. is one of the richest countries in the world, yet 43.1 million Americans live in poverty and 19.4 million live in "deep" poverty, which often persists across generations. Family members may remain unemployed or "stuck" in low wage jobs, lacking education and skills needed in an increasingly competitive job market.

  • THE SOLUTION

    OIC provides quality education and training services through a national network of local affiliates. We offer high quality skill development opportunities that enable economically disadvantaged and unemployed people of all races and backgrounds to become productive, more fulfilled members of society.

We envision a world in which all people are contributing members of their families and communities.
