WOS is a not-for-profit whose social mission is to create pathways to successful careers and academic advancement for young adults and post 9/11 veterans through programs that integrate corporate experience with tailored workforce training. We believe that by creating a marriage between corporations and academia, while providing the necessary support throughout the entire process, that young participants will be able to effectively integrate into corporations and thus build the groundwork for financing their own academic advancement. We do not simply create the path; we walk with our participants through every step of the process until they are capable of continuing the journey on their own. We do not simply find jobs, we create careers.
To date the program has created employment opportunities for over 900 participants and operates in 14 states and internationally in France. Our Fortune 500 partners include ADP, Avon, Bank of New York Mellon, Blackstone, Express Scripts Inc., General Electric, Guardian Life Insurance, Hewlett Packard, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Prudential Financial Inc., Sealed Air Corporation and United Rentals.
