OLS Student SmilingSkills for Work. Skills for Life.

Unlike any other program in the nation, Occupational & Life Skills (OLS) is an accredited associate degree program for adults with learning disabilities. In our uniquely supportive program, students learn to identify and develop a career pathway, grow interpersonal skills, build life-long friendships, and gain marketable, workplace-ready skills. OLS creates a guided pathway for graduating students to become gainfully employed, contributing citizens. Since the inception of our program, 85% of our graduates are employed and 30% enjoy upward career mobility.
