Ohio Campus Compact offers a variety of programs focused on building tomorrow’s leaders, including:
AmeriCorps Student Resource Centers
Ohio Campus Compact (OCC) has been selected by ServeOhio, Ohio’s commission on service and volunteerism, to sponsor AmeriCorps members at higher education member institutions throughout Ohio to develop a Student Resource Center program. In support of the mission of Ohio Campus Compact, the AmeriCorps Student Resource Center Coordinators will support the development and growth of the Student Resource Centers, an Ohio Campus Compact initiative, which is designed to support campuses in identifying and providing much-needed resources to students who experience barriers to their academic success.
Communities Thriving VISTA
IKONC (Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and North Carolina, pronounced “iconic”) is a consortium of state civic engagement organizations based in higher education with the goals of educating students for active citizenship and partnering with communities for positive change. The four organizations are Community-Engaged Alliance (IN), Kentucky Campus Compact, Ohio Campus Compact, and North Carolina Campus Engagement. The IKONC organizations have partnered together to create the Communities Thriving VISTA project, which seeks to place VISTA members with nonprofit organizations in order to address poverty-related issues and create positive community outcomes. Communities Thriving VISTA members will serve with a local agency and work with community groups to benefit low income individuals and families.
Pay it Forward
The Pay it Forward student philanthropy program has developed new philanthropists through an innovative course-based service-learning model that engages Ohio college students in hands-on philanthropy, grant-making, and volunteer service while providing community nonprofits with much needed assistance.
