Scholars

 

 

What is NaviGo Scholars?

Through NaviGo Scholars, Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky businesses have the power to connect with high school students who have the interest and aptitude for their industry.
Business sponsors in our NaviGo Scholars program have the unique opportunity to hand-pick potential future employees, guiding them and training them at an early age. NaviGo staff recruits students to be part of the program, and students apply at the start of the school year. Sponsors then personally select who they want to be part of their personalized NaviGo Scholars group.

What makes this program unique is the NaviGo Coach.

While students get hands-on experiences during their monthly on-site meetings, a NaviGo coach is also on hand, learning along with the students. The coach also serves as a liason, ensuring the sponsor’s desired soft skills and company culture become part of the experience. Additionally, the NaviGo coach meets separately with the students each month as a follow-up, helping them set up the guideposts to achieve their college and career goals.

Below are the 2021-22 NaviGo Scholars opportunities, listed with the sponsor company and group specifics. *Transportation to in-person meetings will be the responsibility of the student.
