Olentangy: BridgED

Olentangy:BridgED is an activation team built to “bridge the gap” between K-12 and the business community. BridgED was built by corporate engagement professionals in academia to solve the fundamental challenges of helping companies and districts work together.

The impact is workforce development and ultimately student success and defining paths through graduation.

ACCESS: Internships, job shadowing, classroom presentations and experiences. 

AWARENESS: About jobs and companies in the community. We are always staying connected with Ohio data pertaining to workforce trends. 

UNDERSTANDING: There are many paths leading to successful careers, including options direct to the workforce post-graduation, 1-year certifications, 2-year degrees, and 4-year degrees.
