The Education and Employment Ministry, also known as TEEM, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to breaking cycles of incarceration and poverty through education, personal development, and work readiness training.


TEEM has served Oklahomans in need with education, social services, job training and job placement assistance since 1987. In the past 30 years, TEEM has served over 15,000 Oklahomans. Recently, TEEM's work has been covered by The OklahomanFox 25 News, the Journal Record, KOCO 5, News 9, and the Oklahoma Gazette.

TEEM takes a three-pronged approach to breaking cycles of incarceration and poverty in Oklahoma by providing individuals with education, social services, and job training and placement. We holistically prepare our participants for employment by incorporating mentorship, life skills training and confidence building into our program. By giving a hand up, we help our participants refine their skills and achieve their goals.
