Allied JOBS Program is a federal grant administrated through the Oklahoma Department of Human Services and the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. The program is designed to train participants for employment and to open doors of opportunity. The job skills preparation includes computer applications, written communication, customer service, and job readiness.

Mission

To assist single parent households in receiving skills to become self- sufficient

Goals

  1. To break down the barriers that prevent self-sufficiency
  2. To provide the skills and training necessary to gain full-time employment and “retain” it
