State Representative Mark Romanchuk (R-Ontario) has announced that Mansfield City Schools have received a grant of approximately $75,000 as part of Ohio’s Community Connectors school mentorship program. In 2014, Governor Kasich and the Ohio legislature designed the Community Connectors program to bring schools, businesses, faith groups, and civic groups together in an effort to encourage mentorship opportunities for students.


Mansfield Local Schools, in partnership with North End Community Improvement Collaborative (NECIC) Mansfield, will host a program for students in grades 6-12 that will connect them to trained peer and adult mentors in one-on-one, peer-to-peer, or group settings.


“I’m looking forward to having our young students paired up with mentors in our community,” said Rep. Romanchuk. “Mentoring has proven to be a valuable tool in the development of productive citizens.” 


Additional community partners for the program include Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Central Ohio, North Central State College, The Ohio State University – Mansfield Campus, Life Vineyard Church, and Directions Credit Union.
