CATS works with various non-profits that are involved with the arts, college and careers for urban teens, including:

  • Cincinnati Public Schools identifies CPS students who are at risk of not graduating and provides three full-time staff to CATS, making it possible for CATS to change lives, give hope and opportunity to students who might otherwise not succeed.
  • Cincinnati Youth Collaborative (CYC) has an on-site college resource center at CATS, where CYC advisors provide college access services to CATS students. These include assistance with college applications and financial aid, scholarship searches, career advice, college tours, and various informational events.
  • University of Cincinnati DAAP Alliance, an initiative to increase diversity in design-based careers, sponsored by the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning, and Procter & Gamble. CATS students explore design-based careers through this world class program. CATS, along with only a handful of schools, has been selected to participate.

Organizations and employers who are helping to develop CATS teens for successful careers include:

  • Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center
  • Cincinnati Works
  • Easter Seals TriState
  • A Unique Place Enterprise, L.L.C.
