BIPOC-Led Organization


Portland Opportunities Industrialization Center + Rosemary Anderson High School (POIC + RAHS) is committed to the success of at-risk youth and adults, providing the highest quality services in education, mentoring, family outreach, employment training, and placement.

Bottom Line for Portland

At POIC + RAHS, our mission is deeply rooted in a steadfast commitment to nurturing a vibrant, interconnected, and equitable community.  

Our purpose is to empower and uplift underserved young people and adults in our community through essential education, job training, and placement services so every individual, regardless of their background, has the opportunity to flourish. Our programs are designed to break down barriers and open doors to opportunities that were once out of reach. We firmly believe that creating a sustainable future means equipping people with the skills to enhance their educational journeys, nurture their mental well-being, and pursue fulfilling careers.  In addition to these transformative resources, we remain unwavering in our commitment to public safety, recognizing it as the bedrock of a thriving community. 

Your support means the world to this collective and is truly indispensable.  We invite you to join us in our shared journey to create a lasting legacy for future generations. Together, let's make a profound and enduring impact where education, job training, and public safety are the building blocks of hope and empowerment that future generations will proudly inherit. 


“The support of POIC + RAHS is unlike any other program I’ve dealt with - they helped me get on my feet after I was locked up. They’ve become more like my family.” – POIC + RAHS Program Participant

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

POIC + RAHS is a minority-led nonprofit with more than 50% of Executive Leadership identifying as a person of color and over 65% of POIC + RAHS staff (up to 90% in some programs) identify as a person of color. The majority of those served identify as Black or African American. By hiring from the communities we serve, welcoming former students onto our board of directors, and checking in with participants and partners regularly, the voices of those we reach are included and amplified at every level of our organization.
