Opportunity Dubuque is a training/employment partnership that provides the necessary skills for today's jobs in advanced manufacturing, information technology, healthcare and logistics. Opportunity Dubuque prepares unemployed/underemployed workers and youth for skilled jobs in today's economy. The training provides the "hard skills" that employers require while developing the "soft skills" necessary for participants to experience long-term success as employees.
Opportunity Dubuque participants are selected through an interview and assessment process and receive full scholarships for training at Northeast Iowa Community College. Graduates can then choose to interview with employers seeking skilled entry-level employees at $10-$18 an hour or to continue their education by earning a degree.
