The Learning Center Job-Training Program at Oak Grove Computer Lab

Section 3 is a requirement under the Housing and Urban Development Act which states a preference must be granted to low-income persons in all government contractual and hiring decisions.  In order to address this requirement, OCHA entered into a contract with an independent contractor for the purpose of increasing public housing resident's qualifications for employment.  Training is conducted at Oak Grove.  Residents are transported each day to the computer lab.
The goals of the training program are:

bulletPrepare individuals to take full advantage of employment and job skills training.
bulletHelp individuals improve their personal daily lives and relationships.
bulletStrengthen each persons intra-personal skills as a requisite to becoming self-sufficient.
bulletTeach a core set of job skills common to construction and maintenance trades.
bulletMatch individuals who are job ready with prospective employers.

Over 50 residents have been placed into employment as a result of the program.

Other Programs available through the Oak Grove Learning Center:
