FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
OIC of America and it’s Network of Affiliates has a long and successful history of partnering with the Department of Labor to serve America’s most challenging workforce needs. During the pandemic in 2020, our network demonstrated its ability to continue to meet the needs of our program participants to make an impact. We are pleased to announce that OIC of America will expand its national program, SOAR (Skills & Opportunity for Achievement and Responsibility) into its 6th iteration increasing the total number of people served to more than 4,500 individuals impacted by the criminal justice system through the Young Adult Reentry Partnership program.
As our nation embarks on a monumental, formal recognition of our historical national Black holiday Juneteenth, Opportunities Industrialization Centers of America could not think of a better time to announce the OIC’s National Day of Opportunities.
This year we celebrated our founder Rev. Dr. Leon H. Sulllivan’s legacy and purpose by hosting our Moving Mountains event. The virtual event Moving Mountains served as a culminating tribute to Dr. Sullivan’s contributions to our country’s growth in diversity, equity, and inclusion.
