Chester County Opportunities Industrialization Center (CCOIC) recently purchased its first van to be used for transporting program participants to workshops, training, and job interviews. The 12-passenger Chevy van was purchased through a state grant sponsored by (now) retired PA State Senator Andrew Dinniman. In addition to offering transport to students, CCOIC is looking to hire one of its own program participants or graduates as driver.
As said by Dinniman, Job training leading to employment opportunities is the important function of Chester County OIC. I am glad that before retiring from the senate I was able to secure a grant for OIC to purchase a much-needed van to transport those, who they serve, to job training and employment.
