Community Connectors information sessions scheduled for December

12/4/2017

The Community Connectors grant program creates local partnerships to provide volunteer mentoring to students across Ohio. Through these alliances, Ohio’s students have gained access to role models who can motivate and inspire them and help them develop skills that lead to success in school and the workplace. The application period for the next round of Community Connectors grants will open in February 2018. The state will award $8 million in 3:1 matching grants.
