$8 million available through Ohio’s Community Connectors program
For the fourth year, Ohio is asking community organizations, faith- or values-based groups, and businesses to form partnerships to encourage one-on-one mentoring for students in Ohio’s schools. The program helps give more students access to role models who can motivate and inspire them. Faith- or values-based and civic nonprofit organizations are eligible to lead these projects. They must team with businesses and eligible public school districts to set up the programs. Eligible participants are public school districts with high percentages of students in poverty and students not graduating on time. All students within those districts will be eligible to take part in the programs, regardless of socioeconomic status.
The Ohio Department of Education will accept online applications for the program through March 16. For more information about applying for Community Connectors, please click here.
