Community Connectors Informational Sessions

The Community Connectors grant program creates local partnerships to provide volunteer mentoring to students across Ohio. Through these alliances, Ohio's students gain access to role models who can motivate and inspire them and help them develop skills that lead to success in school and the workplace. The application period for the next round of Community Connectors grants will open in February 2018. The state will award $8 million in 3:1 matching grants.

Are you interested in submitting a proposal for a Community Connectors Grant, but have questions about the application process? Representatives from the Community Connectors Grant will be conducting information sessions around the state during the months of December and January. 

Topics include: grant program overview for FY 19, eligibility requirements and the application/funding process. You will also hear from a panel of current awardees on their experiences and advice for other programs.
