There’s always something happening at CATC, from the rich stories of individual urban teens finding new hope and opportunity, to our twice-annual themed student art shows, or the excitement of seniors creating their futures through Bridging the Gap. Here are some ideas for stories. For appointments or interviews: Gail Silver at firstname.lastname@example.org or 513.475.0002
Out with the old, in with the new
As the semester winds down and students prepare for winter break, CATC is ramping up for January. The new semester study theme is “Identity,” and the students will be learning about branding–of an organization, an entity, and eventually considering what they’d like their own personal brands to be. Simultaneously, CATC seniors will be introduced to Bridging the Gap, the CATC workforce development program, with the chance to apply for the rigorous training and skills building that has landed dozens of CATC graduates in successful careers.
Ongoing story opportunities:
Training for meaningful careers with Bridging the Gap: Every summer, recently graduated seniors train in various career paths, including as nursing assistants (Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center is primary partner), through the CATC Bridging the Gap workforce development program. BTG is an extension of the arts-based programming that helps the students achieve graduation, with supports to enable them to succeed after graduation.
