Community Partners

local organizations,
individuals, & small businesses

Opportunities Unlimited of Erie is grateful for the community partners and local organizations that we work with to create on-site experiences for our clients. When OU staff meets an individual for the first time, we like to find out their interests, current skill set, and ideas they have for their future. We take those interests and turn them into transferable skills through our side-by-side training, workplace job shadowing, and overall experiences in our programs.
