Due North is a nonprofit that’s both privately funded and funded by the State of Oklahoma. It’s entirely free to District 1 and 3 residents. All we ask is that you put in the work to succeed.
The beginning services we provide are soft skills - things like resume writing, mock interviews, team building, and emotional intelligence.
From there, we help you identify the next steps in your career path. That could mean pursuing an in-demand certification in careers in transportation, manufacturing, healthcare, accounting or IT.
Our most common job-readiness workshop is Career Readiness Training (CRT). CRT is a week-long training that explains best interview practices and skills that are beneficial for job success and promotion.
We also offer workshops on topics that will help you succeed in the workplace such as dealing with difficult co-workers, communication and important conversations.
That’s okay! We’ll work with you and set the right goals for you. We want to start a conversation about your future.
