Due North increases equitable access to, and completion of, short-term trainings and certifications that lead to quality employment and increased economic mobility for North Tulsa residents. By inspiring hope and demonstrating the power of community collaboration, Due North can positively impact the overall economic outlook of the North Tulsa region.


Due North is bringing people and organizations to the table. This initiative will work with community partners to offer soft-skills training and job readiness workshops at community partner locations in the North Tulsa area for improved access for residents.

Likewise, Due North will work with businesses that are long established or are coming into North Tulsa. We will identify the skilled workers their businesses need, and help train the workforce they need to be successful. It’s a win-win situation driven by collaboration.


A strong community will bring about even stronger collaboration. Due North will work with Tulsa Technology Center and Tulsa Community College to create new, customized short-term classes at nearby campuses. Individuals enrolling in training will earn industry credentials.

Due North participants will receive individualized career coaching and job placement services, collaborating directly with Due North personnel. In the end, this helps participants and North Tulsa residents get placed in rewarding and stable careers.


North Tulsa is home, or will soon be home, to some of Tulsa’s leading businesses. Greenheck, Muncie Power Products, McElroy Manufacturing, and the Peoria Mohawk Business Park are leading the way.

In the program’s first year, it will serve 60 individuals. Due North participants may receive transportation assistance, and there are no fees, dues, or costs associated with participating in the program.
