Initiatives

Ohio Campus Compact offers a variety of programs focused on building tomorrow’s leaders, including:

Pay it Forward
The Pay it Forward initiative is developing a new generation of philanthropists through an innovative course-based service-learning program that engages Ohio, Michigan, and Kentucky college students in hands-on philanthropy, grant-making, and volunteer service while providing community nonprofits with much needed assistance during the economic downturn.

VISTA
OCC’s current AmeriCorps VISTA program initiative is the Connect2Complete (C2C) program. The Connect2Complete program’s goal is to improve student retention and graduation rates of low-socioeconomic status and underrepresented college students through a unique combination of peer advocacy and community engagement activities.

Campus Election Engagement Project
The Campus Election Engagement Project or CEEP is a national non-partisan voter-engagement project which had a major impact in 2008 and 2012 and began addressing off-year elections in 2013. We help America’s colleges and universities get as many of their students as possible to register, volunteer in campaigns, educate themselves, and turn out at the polls. We work through administrators, faculty and staff plus student leaders, helping them use their key positions to engage their campuses.
