OBT has a long history of serving the communities of Brooklyn. Since 1983, we have been working in Sunset Park where our main office and original training center is still located. In 2001, in recognition of our great work, several foundations encouraged us to expand our services to the high-need communities of Bushwick and Bedford-Stuyvesant. Our site at 25 Thornton Street in Bushwick is a modern training facility with eleven classrooms and three state-of-the-art computer labs. We also have a satellite office in Red Hook, Brooklyn, that has been helping the unemployed and under-employed residents from the area connect to the employment and training services they need.
Whether you are a person looking for assistance, an OBT alumni looking to reconnect, a business owner looking to hire employees, or a person looking to support a great non-profit organization, I hope you find this website useful. More importantly, I would encourage you to visit OBT for yourself and see how we transform people’s lives for the better. You have an open invitation!
Very Truly Yours,
Chief Executive Officer
