Through the collaboration of the Parma Area Chamber of Commerce, Parma City School District, Community Ambassadors and the C/B/S Partnership, CBS Connects seeks to strengthen the community, encourage mentoring opportunities and create new pathways for civic engagement that will result in higher educational achievement, higher levels of well-being and health and workforce readiness for our state.
CBS Connects is funded through the Community Connectors grant provided by Governor John Kasich and the Ohio Legislature.
CBS Connects gives students access to role models to help motivate and inspire them. The program aims to help students develop skills that will lead to additional success in the school and the marketplace. The goal is to produce college and career ready graduates from the Parma City School District that can make a positive impact in the community, region, state and beyond.
