SuccessBound initiative helps form relationships between schools and businesses
The SuccessBound initiative empowers businesses and schools to form win-win-win partnerships. Schools win by forming relationships with businesses that want to invest in education. Businesses win by gaining the opportunity to better prepare their future workforce. And students win by learning through engaging, real-world work experiences.
The Department, in partnership with the Ohio Educational Service Center Association, recently hosted the inaugural statewide SuccessBound conference. Additional conferences are being planned regionally throughout Ohio. Details will be forthcoming. Upcoming conferences will provide opportunities to foster additional partnerships, network, interact with potential partners and feature sessions addressing the unique needs of specific regions in Ohio.
SuccessBound’s goal is to sustain the work of Ohio’s $2 million New Skills for Youth grant award. Additional SuccessBound program details are available on the Department’s website.
