Award Date: July 30, 2021
Awarded: $15,200

Through a multi-disciplinary collaborative partnership, Urban League of Greater Oklahoma City (ULOKC) provides employment services to Diversion Hub clients. With the expansion of the Urban League services within the Diversion Hub, they serve people referred by law enforcement, the courts or themselves for voluntarily participation in services. There are many individuals in Oklahoma County that face a wide range of barriers to employment, including lack of basic reading and math skills; absence of knowledge about career options; no industry-recognized training/certification; and paucity of marketable skills. The Urban League has expertise in assistance with overcoming common barriers that un- or under-employed African Americans, other minorities, and the poor face in employment.
