Employment and Education Assistance

Oberlin Community Services has many options to help our clients prepare for employment or further their education. Our goal is to assess our clients' needs and provide the tools and training to get an interview and secure a job. We offer programs that help people get back on their feet and move forward with confidence, optimism and support.  

WISE Program

The WISE Program (Women in Sustainable Employment) is a Career Pathways program that encourages women to explore non-traditional careers. The WISE program also provides help with resume writing, mock interviews, peer support and access to the supportive services offered by the WE3 Collaborative (Women Empowered, Educated and Employed), Lorain County JVS, Lorain County Community College and Ohio Means Jobs-Lorain County.
