The best social service program in the world is a job. We’re going to make sure the people who need those jobs the most get them. - Louis J. King II, President and CEO
November 14, 2022 - A $5 million gift to OIC of America from philanthropist MacKenzie Scott will help launch the Sullivan Training Network, a national network of training programs offering accredited courses to low-income rural and inner city individuals who have been left out of this economy as a result of the decades of systemic racial economic inequality experienced by Black Americans.
This gift – and the confidence it shows in OIC – is more evidence that OIC’s approach is right for our times. These free accredited courses will prepare this underserved population with the skills to address the labor shortage in high demand fields across the country and connect them with employers who offer living wages in these fields.
