CYC thanks the P&G Alumni Foundation Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation for their generous grant of $25,000 to support our Work Readiness program, Jobs for Cincinnati Graduates (JCG). This grant will support our mission to empower vulnerable students to overcome obstacles and succeed in education, career and life. JCG provides high school students core employment skills, enrichment experiences, community service activities, and access to 8-week paid internships.
“By connecting students, particularly those at a high-risk of dropping out, with resources and tools for success, CYC continually proves that preparation and opportunity make all the difference in creating success after high school,” said Jane Keller, President and CEO for Cincinnati Youth Collaborative. “CYC’s 3 E’s – Enrollment, Enlistment, and Employment – are the key outcomes we track for our youth, because we know that success does not end after a high school diploma. This grant is pivotal for positive lifelong outcomes for our students.”
