College Now Greater Cleveland opens new Educational Opportunity HUB
KENMORE — College Now Greater Cleveland and United Way of Summit & Medina (UWSM) have opened a new Educational Opportunity HUB to house College Now services in United Way’s Financial Empowerment Center at 1060 Kenmore Blvd.
Officials stated the Summit County Educational Opportunity HUB would act as the College Now Cleveland Resource Center, providing individualized services to residents who want to start or continue their post-high school education. Available services include career planning and coaching; choosing a school and academic program; and financing an education and student loan counseling.
Adults in Medina County are welcome to access services at the Education Opportunity HUB, and officials hope to provide in-person services in Medina County in the near future.
For services, visit www.collegenowgc.org to fill out a request for assistance and then choose an in-person or virtual meeting with a College Now Adult Programs adviser. For more information, call 330-548-8294 or email [email protected]
Officials stated the Summit County Educational Opportunity HUB would be funded through a federal Trio Educational Opportunity Center grant awarded in partnership with Summit Education Initiative and UWSM in October.
“Ohio has set an ambitious goal of having 65 percent of its residents ages 25-64 obtain a degree, certificate, or other postsecondary workforce credential by 2025,” said College Now Senior Director of Adult Programs and Services Julie Szeltner. “As we approach that date, we know it is more important than ever to help more students, particularly adults, restart their postsecondary education and pursue an education pathway that will lead them to a living-wage career.
“[The HUB] gives individuals and families throughout Summit County the tools and resources needed to advance their futures,” added Jim Mullen, president and CEO of UWSM.
College Now provides students with guidance and access to funds to prepare for and graduate from college in five Northeast Ohio counties. For more details, visit the website.
