Established in 1961, Opportunity for Work and Learning (OWL) impacts lives and strengthens communities by building a supported, inclusive, and sustainable workforce.
OWL’s mission is to partner with individuals, businesses, and communities to assist those requiring support with factors impacting their employability. We do this by helping our participants discover their strengths and develop their skills and connecting them with the wrap-around services needed and the support required to achieve personal growth and successful long-term employment.

OWL’s Skilled Trade Academy is a pre-apprenticeship program designed to provide participants a well-rounded pathway into construction trades. What sets us apart from other training programs is our commitment to the whole individual.


Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to everyone who sponsored, donated, volunteered, golfed, or participated in any other way to make this year's golf outing a success!  We truly could not do this without you, and we are extremely grateful for your support in helping us impact lives and strengthening our community!
