OEC Needs Your Support!
While OEC has been successful in growing capacity through partnerships, grants and fee based work, much of the infrastructure and staff time necessary to provide youth with the support they need to successully complete our programs as well as to prepare them for future jobs or schooling is not covered by grant or fee based deliverables. OEC is rallying our support base to ensure a sustainable future for the youth of Syracuse and Central New York.
2016 Kicks-off OEC’s Inaugrual Year as a 501 (c) (3)
In 2004 OEC launched as an 8 week summer program with no dedicated staff and one crew of 14-18 year olds. In 2016 OEC has five staff (4 FT, 1-5 PT), eight crews and is operating close to year round. In 2015, the OEC Board of Directors submitted its application to and was awarded 501 (c) (3) status by the IRS. OEC has been building capacity towards this for several years with the support of numerous partners, collaborators, project hosts and foundations. Thanks to all who have helped make this happen!
