Mentoring

Matches caring adults with students (grades 2-16) to help them attend school regularly, improve their self-esteem and interpersonal relationships, and encourage post-secondary employment. Options include one-on-one mentoring, group mentoring, worksite mentoring, and college mentoring.

One-to-one Mentoring: Matches caring adult mentors with students on a one-to-one basis; grades 2-12 and students within their first two years of college.

Co-Mentoring: An opportunity where two adults share in the mentoring of a student. This mentoring option offers great flexibility and is oftentimes the preferred choice for young professionals. Enjoy all the elements of one-to-one mentoring but share it with someone else (co-worker, spouse, friend)

Group Mentoring: This program offers exceptional flexibility. A team of mentors shares the responsibility of meeting with a group of students on a regular basis. Focus areas can include social-emotional competencies, life skills, anti-drug, financial literacy, and more. Programs vary based on the group of mentors, students, and school needs.

Girls Club: Serves girls grades 4&5 with a focus on self-care, career exploration, academic success, and social-emotional well-being.

Saturday Hoops: Supports students of all ages, focuses on positive role modeling, and includes activities such as basketball, arts, crafts, and reading more.

Corporate Mentoring: Matches corporate partners with students to focus on academic success, work readiness skills, and job site visits. Examples include PNC Scholars and P&G FAAN Mentors.

UC Med Mentors: Matches elementary students with 1st year medical students from The University of Cincinnati. Focuses on computer literacy, academic success, and exposure to new opportunities for students. Medical students increase their cultural competency and can use the mentoring experiences as an elective credit toward their degree.  

College and Career Success

Beginning in middle school, CYC provides comprehensive career and college guidance to partner schools. Programs supply individualized support and mentoring to ensure graduation and a successful post-secondary education transition. CYC AmeriCorps College Guides and GEAR UP Ohio Advisors provide:

  • Financial aid (FAFSA), college application support, scholarships and grants
  • College visits and college application support
  • Career exploration and planning
  • 12-month follow-up services to support the transition from high school

Resource Coordination

CYC Resource Coordinators support local school districts in implementing the Community Learning Center (CLC), a nationally recognized model of engaging school and community stakeholders to align resources to impact student success and promote vibrant communities.

  • Educational assistance through the implementation of tutoring, after-school, and academic success programming
  • Career guidance by facilitating college and career fairs, field trips, workshops, and more
  • Social-emotional support by providing access to physical and mental health services and a positive environment for all to express themselves

Work Readiness

The CYC Jobs for Cincinnati Graduates (JCG) Program is a nationally accredited year-round in-school program that prepares students for post-secondary career pursuits through career awareness, exploration, guidance, and placement. Specific focus areas include:

  • Classroom experiences for both middle school and high school students via a 1-credit hour class that meets every day of the school year
  • Leadership and self-development via the JCG Career Association, the Career Development Conference, and both professional and personal core competency skills
  • Summer work experiences for high school seniors and rising 9th graders that build employability skills and career learning through on-site experiences, including compensation
  • 12-month follow-up services to support the transition from high school
