Buckeye Career Center has several hour-long sessions of the Partnership Development Summit planned for Feb. 15 and Feb. 22, with registrants selecting one date and time to attend. Sessions will be offered during both of those days from 9-10 a.m., noon to 1 p.m. and 4-5 p.m. Each session will be hosted by Buckeye Career Center administration at BCC in the Buckeye Room.

Attendees will hear from Frank Polen, Buckeye Career Center director of curriculum, instruction and adult education; other BCC administrators; and BCC marketing staff members.

They will discuss how employers can schedule tours to meet and view BCC students and staff at work, conduct onsite employment presentations and interviews, and participate in prescheduled BCC marketing events.

Attendees also will be exposed to BCC’s work-based learning options including how employers can hire students who wish to work or participate in pre-apprenticeships, internships or mentorships while also going to school.

“We are often asked how employers can get involved at BCC or what the process is to hire high school students while they are still in school. These sessions will help employers learn how to connect with BCC and our various programs and events,” Polen said.

Each session also will cover several employer incentives, offered by the state of Ohio, to employers who hire career-technical education students during their high school years. This includes details on Senate Bill 166, Tech. Cred funding and other grant opportunities.

Anyone interested in attending one of the six Partnership Development Summit sessions at BCC should register in advance by visiting www.BuckeyeCareerCenter.org. The registration link can be found in the green banner at the top of the website.

Select only one session to attend, as all sessions will include the same information. Questions should be directed to Polen at 330-339-2288 or fpolen@buckeyecareercenter.org.

Those who are unable to attend also can contact Polen with questions or to schedule an individual appointment.
