Who is Team WIN?

Team WIN is a group of wonderful young adults who are helping OCLA® spread the word about the WIN app in the community!


About Team WIN

The Team WIN program is a part-time paid internship program for young adults who have experienced resource-insecurity and/or homelessness. This program was founded in Dec 2018 to offer participants bi-weekly training in social media and video production. Team WIN members have also had the opportunity to gain experience in direct community outreach through public presentations, tabling events and street outreach.
