Student Experiences

Nashville OIC is about people.

OIC student Whitney Allen wrote a letter about her experience at Nashville OIC. Click here to read Whitney's letter.

Rakeisha Groves-Elliott is a mother of four who enrolled in OIC’s GED Preparation program and  obtained her GED.  She was hired by the state of Tennessee making $11 an hour. Rakeisha’s children are very proud of their mother’s accomplishments.

Larry Harper, who spent ten years in prison, found OIC by dialing 211.  He enrolled in Job Placement and is working two jobs. He is in college and studying Health Informational Technology. Larry’s background created employment barriers, but OIC helped him overcome them.

There are hundreds more stories of how students of OIC overcame obstacles to secure better lives for themselves and their families.  Whether you are a student, partner, donor or volunteer, being a part of OIC means “helping people help themselves” and helping our community thrive.
