Explanation
This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to enter into a grant agreement with the Driven Foundation in support of the Career Exposure Program.

The Driven Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization founded in 2008 by former NFL and Ohio State University Football teammates Roy Hall and Antonio Smith. Driven’s infrastructure is built on three core principles: perseverance, resilience, and assistance. Through outreach events and programs, they use their platform for a purpose to assist in solving various community challenges.

The Career Exposure Program, known as CE100, is Driven Foundation’s second phase of programming surrounding career exploration. The program is designed to help create exposure and provide an inside look into various jobs, careers, and professions, and to help navigate individuals toward occupational opportunities.

The Driven Foundation will partner with the City of Columbus to offer CE100 to constituents. CE100 will highlight career opportunities within the various city departments and serve as a resource for recruiting purposes. This amendment will allow Driven to highlight opportunities that lie within the City’s Division of Police and Fire.

Fiscal Impact: Funding is available within the Jobs Growth subfund.

Emergency action is requested in order to avoid any delay in allowing the Driven Foundation to begin implementing the CE100 program for Columbus residents.
