Thanks to generous financial support from AT&T Foundation and AES Ohio Foundation, approximately 100 high school students at Dayton Public Schools will be kicking off the 2022-2023 school year with their own personal career advisor.

The Transform Career Mentoring Program from Transform Consulting, Cincinnati, Ohio, has partnered with the Office of Cultural Engagement & Inclusion at Dayton Public and will match each participating 10th or 11th grader with a volunteer Career Mentor from local Dayton businesses and organizations.

Career Mentors will stay partnered with their assigned student mentees throughout the students’ high school career, providing the students will expert advice and counsel on career choices, schooling options, employers to consider, and overcoming the barriers that may arise.

Student mentees, Career Mentors, as well as the DPS Cultural Engagement & Inclusion Life Coaches will be expected to connect every week for a minimum of five minutes, and the program will track their connecting in special software provided by Transform Consulting
