Engaging and Inspiring Students
Our mission is to facilitate the development of Oklahoma's future workforce by creating awareness of careers and promoting pathways that build confidence and excitement for workplace success.
OK2GROW is a small business driven workforce development and career pathways nonprofit focused on entrepreneurship, high school completion and career awareness activities. We have three program areas to support our goal:
- Youth Entrepreneurship
- Career Awareness
- Dream It Do It Oklahoma: the next generation of makers, builders and manufacturing
Through our High School Completion Coalition we help students develop a vision of success for their future by connecting with a career path. We bridge gaps between educators, businesses, parents and students by organizing career awareness activities and emphasizing the importance of completing high school.
Lastly, Dream It Do It Oklahoma showcases career pathways in manufacturing to youth through student and educator tours of manufacturing facilities, collaborative training programs, internships and classroom visits. The average salary in Oklahoma for manufacturing positions is $60, 473. There are opportunities for both men and women, and the industry is in need of its next generation of leaders.
