Propel Ohio 2017 logo“Ohio has been home to innovators and leaders for generations, from presidents to poets, from the Wright Brothers to John Glenn. We want to prepare the next generation of Ohioans to continue their legacy.” -U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown

Propel Ohio is a leadership program that promotes civic engagement and inspires undergraduate students to grow into civic leaders in Ohio. The Propel Ohio program includes a one-day statewide conference in the fall and five regional gatherings in the winter and spring.

Propel Ohio 2017 will actively engage with college students on issues that affect childhood poverty, including food security, inequities in education, and homelessness.

U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown, guest speakers, and workshop facilitators will discuss how college students can tackle these challenges in their Ohio communities. Propel Ohio will also feature an Internship Fair, where students will connect with Ohio-based organizations that are tackling childhood poverty. Each of Ohio’s two-year, four-year public and private colleges and universities and regional campuses is invited to appoint up to four undergraduate students and one administrator to attend the program. Applications are now closed.
