At the Tip of Your Fingers
A COMMUNITY CENTER THAT REACHES NEW MILESTONES!
Rather going into the school campus to host after- school educational workshops, to other field career readiness activities, the OACC is here to help reform school performance and reach higher academic and social enrichment.
REACHING THE ENTIRE FAMILY FOR GOAL SETTING AND EDUCATIONAL SUCCESS!
OACC partners with the new initiative of workshops for families in alliance to the Toledo Public School District in their missions to encourage youth school performance and academic achievement at "PTO" for parents and youth together.
START MOVING WITH YOUTH MINDS UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

Who We Serve
At Open Arms Community Center of Toledo, there is truly something for everyone. Whatever your interests are, we cater to all ages in order to promote an educated, cultured and enriching community. Whether you are looking for enriching activities or want to take part in any of our social events — we provide an array of services that are sure to keep you busy all year long.
The Open Arms ® mentoring program is dedicated to helping youth build career plans & skills and prepare for school completion, post-secondary training, and productive work, by providing structured and supportive relationships with trusted adult mentors. The Open Arms Community Center Youth Mentoring Program® serves youth ages 12-17, who are at risk of delinquency or have already had contact with the juvenile justice system.
The Open Arms ® youth mentoring program will assist youth in the following service areas: social competency, academic achievement, career awareness and service learning.
Individuals 18+ will have access to network with various staffing agencies and businesses that are ready to employ adults with part-time to full-time work. Individuals will undergo OACC screening assessments to identify abilities to determine the best work placement. Clients will learn workplace etiquette: dos and don’ts on the job, interviewing skills and best practices to retain employment.
ADULT COMPUTER LITERACY
This course is for individuals 18+ who are interested in sharpening their computer skills. The course will increase participants’ ability to use computers and related technology efficiently, with a range of skills. Each participant will be able to earn a certificate of completion to apply accredits towards a college degree.
If you are in need of business attire for your 1st interview or you're just simply in need of any clothing or household items, please do not hesitate to contact us. Please come by the Open Arms Community Center (Tuesdays & Fridays).
Please call to make an appointment or stop by between 10am - 2pm.
In addition to our programs and services OACC also offers case management services, counselling and a public food pantry.

GET TO KNOW US
[Open Arms Community Center]
A 501(c)(3) was organized to eliminate social tension associated with teen violence, inappropriate social skills, unemployment, an indifference to the community and to develop an inclusive relationship with seniors.
Open Arms origins were born out of a sense of outrage as to why teens were behaving so irresponsibility.
We at OACC believe our host of programs are meaningful and bring about positive outcomes and will be a guide towards positive success.
Our Motto is: Serve, Educate and Reform!
