Our mission is to assist African Americans, other minorities and the poor to achieve social and economic equality.
Workforce and Career Development
Workforce and Career Development (WFCD) specializes in assessing and addressing barriers of individuals to increase their employability opportunities. We serve unemployed and underemployed individuals seeking a career change and those previously or currently justice-involved. This program helps strengthen the economic well-being of Oklahoma County’s African American families and other minority families living in poverty by increasing sustainable employment opportunities that will lead to self-sufficiency and less dependence on government subsidies. We provide access to industry-recognized certification, work readiness training, and connections with employers, emphasizing high-demand occupations. WFCD provides services through two specialized initiatives, the After Prison Work Initiative (APWI) and the Young Adult Reentry Program (UYRP).
