BENEFITING: Citylink Center
ORGANIZER: Citylink Center
EVENT DATE: Nov 29, 2016
“These are the best graduations I have ever been to… don’t tell my kids.” The heart of CityLink is in community and building relationships. Education volunteers like us work with CityLink's on-site partner agencies to help our clients move their education goals forward. We have a unique opportunity to work alongside clients in the classroom, during Study Tables, and through the basic literacy tutoring program (PEM). Volunteers share in all the joy, frustrations, laughter and tears that accompany the journey our clients take towards obtaining their GED through Cincinnati Public Schools or even an IT Training Certification through Per Scholas Cincinnati. This journey can be long, and many individuals have been told they will never earn a living wage because they “gave up” on school, or “aren’t smart enough.” Our volunteers play a vital role in proving those voices wrong by providing the hope and encouragement needed to help individuals achieve their educational goals.
Please give to our fundraiser. A contribution to CityLink’s education programming will help another individual find the spark, obtain their GED, and put them one step closer to reaching their goals of providing a more stable and thriving life for themselves and their children. Together we are CityLink.
