For 45 years, Nashville OIC has provided job training and placement to improve the lives of its students. Generous donors make the OIC experience possible and free to students. All costs of education, training and job placement services are covered, including GED practice tests and the state GED examination. Bus passes are provided for actively enrolled students, and there is never a waiting list to enroll in classes.
OIC attacks the root causes of poverty, not just the symptoms, by helping students build their qualifications and get jobs.
Volunteers make an extraordinary impact on Nashville OIC’s students and their families. For volunteer opportunities, please visit our Volunteer page.
Donations from corporations, foundations, faith-based communities and individuals allow Nashville OIC’s programs to effectively serve a growing number of students and improve lives.
OIC delivers measurable outcomes. For every $1 donated, $9 is returned to the community, which is a significant Return on Investment. Visit our Programs page to learn more about OIC’s services and About Us to learn about OIC’s Mission, History and Leadership.
