Through a multi-disciplinary collaborative partnership, Urban League provides employment services to Diversion Hub clients. With the expansion of the Urban League services within the Diversion Hub, they will 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. 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. The Urban League workforce program clients’ barriers routinely include lack of basic reading and math skills; absence of knowledge about career options; no industry-recognized training/certification; and paucity of marketable skills.
