ABOUT CBS CONNECTS
CBS Connects is a grant funded program that is being funded by the Community Connectors grant. The Parma City School District was awarded the grant through their partnership with C/B/S, the Parma Area Chamber of Commerce, and Community Ambassadors to empower the youth of PCSD to overcome obstacles and succeed in education, careers, and life.
Through this partnership we will be able to offer the students of the Parma City School District access to career exploration, career development, and the attainment and advancement of 21st century soft skills. This will be accomplished through providing students access to mentoring, job shadowing, internships and educational field trips to expose them to a variety of career fields. CBS Connects will also be providing students with classroom speakers, mentor luncheons and after school workshops to connect students with professionals with a variety of educational and professional backgrounds.
It is our goal to produce college and career ready graduates from the Parma City School District that can make a positive impact on the Parma community, Northeast Ohio, and beyond.
