Level Up – Launch Your Future
May 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The CPS’ Career Technical Education department will host “The Level Up: Launch Your Future” program for the final Beyond The Tassel virtual series at 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 19, on Facebook Live.
Working in partnership with the Urban League of Greater Southwestern Ohio (ULGSO), the Cincinnati-Hamilton County Community Action Agency (CAA), Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS), and Easter Seals TriState (ES) will provide work readiness and entry-level training that can result in credentials and certifications to create earn-as-you-learn employment pathways. Participants will have the opportunity to develop a career pathway and participate in a work-readiness subsidized funded work experience.
The Level Up: Launch Your Future program is designed to overcome post-secondary employment barriers. This partnership will leverage $700,000 in work readiness and upskill training for ages 16-24 in the Cincinnati area, including students and recent graduates from CPS. The program and employer relationships of the partnerships provide a robust experience. Students will earn $12 per hour over 12 weeks while they receive job training, job placement and can earn an industry credential in:
- Child Development
- Customer Service
- Information Technology (IT)
The Class of 2021 graduates that have identified Employment as one of their 3E Plan postsecondary career plans will have the opportunity to apply to the June 2021 cohort. Students who need to obtain certifications in a CPS CTE pathway can receive upskill training and job placement.
The Career Technical Education department is committed to providing students with employment opportunities upon graduation by collaborating with CTE teachers and counselors to register students for the career fair/information session on 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 19, on the CPS’ Facebook page.
