Dr. Art Langer founded Workforce Opportunity Services (WOS), which is a nonprofit charitable organization that helps empower young adults and military veterans through unique, innovative work-study programs.
WOS works with companies to identify specific staffing needs and then trains its students to fill those roles. The goal: To provide these students with long-term career and educational opportunities, along with the tools to become productive citizens.
WOS works with academic partners (including Rutgers, Penn State, Georgia Tech, University of Texas at El Paso, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and others) to create company-appropriate academic curriculums. Carefully-selected students are then trained to fill roles in IT services, programming and design, cybersecurity, finance & accounting, customer services, operations, and other areas requested by the companies. Program graduates are now working with Johnson & Johnson, Prudential, ADP, HBO, Hewlett Packard, Merck, Panasonic, and other global and national organizations.
