OIC’s programs benefit low-income individuals as they learn, often for the first time, skills and strategies for living a successful life – not simply the specific, job-content focused skills needed for work, but also the soft skills of effective communication, time management, financial management, and decision-making. Clients leave OIC well-prepared for the future and able to secure meaningful employment to improve their lives.
