Supply Chain OKI

Supply Chain OKI is seeking funds to create pilot cohorts of HS students (25) and adults (50) who will receive Certified Logistics/Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt/Supply Chain Fundamental Training, resulting in paid employment. We utilize will Lunch & Learns and Webinars to help people learn about supply chain career pathways and get jobs.  

Our Goal: $15,000

Youth Programs

The Youth Program was created to make students in over 35 high schools aware of Supply Chain Career Pathways and current job opportunities. Information is presented by business partners and Supply Chain OKI leaders, through virtual and in-person Lunch & Learns. Students in 12th grade, who are interested in learning more, are selected by their high school to participate in a co-op program. These students receive supply chain training during their first semester and are placed in paid, co-op jobs the second semester, giving the students hands-on experience working for business partners.  Many participants are offered a full-time job after graduation!
There have been 189 students that have participated in this program. Many more high school students need an opportunity to get supply chain training and monetary help with transportation to and from co-op jobs. Your donation will help us expand this program by these costs. The cost for Lean Six Sigma/Supply Chain Fundamental Training is $200 per student. Donations totaling $5,000 will help 25 students get training and paid co-op jobs.

Our Goal: $5,000

Teacher Externships

Teacher Externships are being launched in participating districts to help High School teachers learn about supply chain jobs and workplaces by working at a SCOKI business partner part-time during the summer. The paid work experience in supply chain will increase 20 participating teachers’ knowledge of supply chain career pathways. Teachers will be able to share their experiences about supply chain jobs/careers, expectations and workplaces with students. 

Our Goal: $4,000
