CYC’s Jobs for Cincinnati Graduates Program received the 2015 SuperAward for Youth Opportunity Provider. The award was granted by the Southwest Ohio Region Workforce Investment Board (SWORWIB), in recognition of JCG’s commitment to using the resources of the public workforce system in Cincinnati and Hamilton County to put more people to work. Mayor John Cranley, Board Chair, Kevin Powell and Sherry Kelley Marshall, President/CEO of the SWORWIB, presented the Super Awards to recipients at the SWORWIB’s annual meeting on February 12, 2015 at the Cincinnati-Hamilton County OhioMeansJobs Center (OMJ Center).
Jobs for Cincinnati Graduates is a credited in-school elective equipping students with 37 core character competencies that prepare them for post-secondary pursuits, whether they be enrollmenet, employment, or enlistment. The JCG program is the local chapter of the statewide Jobs for Ohio’s Graduates program, and the nationwide Job for America’s Graduates (JAG) program. JCG is no stranger to recognition: for the past 19 years JCG has received the “5-of-5” site award, granted to programs that meet or exceed the JAG national standards. In addition, Program Manager Leta White was awarded the 2014 SuperAward for Youth Advocate, and Judith Moore Tucker received the JAG Foundation Award in 2014 for 32 years of service.
Keep up the great work, JCG! You are truly empowering students to overcome obstacles and succeed!
