Our History

Opportunities Industrialization Center, Inc. (OIC) was established in Rocky Mount, NC in 1969 to address high unemployment rates among historically African American and poor communities. Created at the height of the civil rights movement, OIC brought together industry and community to create win-win solutions for workplace success.

From our inception, we have been affiliated with OIC of America, a national non-profit network of employment and training programs. Since then, OIC has consistently provided training and education services to thousands of people of all races and backgrounds in Rocky Mount; And we have grown in our vision, mission and scope.

Today, OIC’s vision is to be the premier agency in our community that helps people help themselves by providing human support services that enhance self-sufficiency. Our mission of offering alternative education, employment training, business support, health education outreach and primary medical care services help guide us as we serve thousands of Edgecombe and Nash county residents.

In our endeavor to reach all individuals and families who have been impacted by systemic poverty and a struggling, shifting rural economy, OIC’s ultimate goal is to help transform Eastern North Carolina by helping people, one household at a time, take control of their own destiny with information, services, access and encouragement.
