March is for Fundraising!

400,000 adult Oklahomans do not have a high school diploma. 31% of adults in our state function at basic literacy levels, and 12% function below basic literacy. These statistics result in workers who are unprepared to meet the demands of a changing workforce. OIC programs provide Oklahomans with literacy and education tools that prepare learners to confidently transition to college, career tech, military and the workforce.
NEW!! Courses beginning March 5th, 2018
Conversational English for Non-native speakers and Citizenship Course!
Free classes to help you learn the English words and phrases to function in the US. The course is structured around teaching themes which provide English survival skills using real-life American cultural experiences (such as the post office, grocery store, bank, restaurant etc.)
Additionally, for interested students, there is a weekly citizenship component conducted in partnership with OCU. Students have an option to choose both classes or just one or the other. Many adults attend citizenship classes throughout OKC. OIC’s classes will help learners improve their English skills in preparation for the US citizenship exam.
