Creating Opportunity

 

According to the Self Sufficiency Clearinghouse, a lack of career readiness, disabilities, low-literacy, and other soft-skill deficiencies can be major barriers for individuals in becoming self-sufficient*. Education and training programs that focus on developing marketable skills, including those that focus on industries and sectors with available jobs represent an opportunity for individuals and families to achieve sustainable self-sufficiency.

In response, Tulsa's Table creates opportunities for at-risk teens to increase their economic and social mobility through garden and culinary learning laboratories. As participants in our programming, students work as paid interns and acquire the kind of life and job skills that keeps them connected to school and successful future employment.
