    Center for Youth and College Education

    The Cleveland Clinic Center for Youth and College Education (CYCE) was created in 2022 with the goal of offering programming that prepares the next generation of caregivers to join the healthcare workforce. The programs run by the center give youth and college learners career exploration opportunities in a healthcare environment, engage learners in real-world immersive learning experiences and offer educational programming that equips learners with necessary professional skills.

    For students and educators throughout Ohio, Connected Career Rounds is a free online program that brings in teams of Cleveland Clinic caregivers every other week from October-March to discuss their careers and walk through care scenarios. Teachers and administrators can sign up entire classrooms to attend live sessions, or anyone can view them on-demand on the Connected Career Rounds on-demand website by selecting “log in as a guest.” On-demand videos will be available through July 2023.

    For students in Northeast Ohio, CYCE offers several career exploration opportunities:

    • ·       The Student Pathways program engages students in a six-week curriculum that exposes them to clinical and non-clinical careers and teaches them vital skills such as interviewing and resume writing.
    • ·       CYCE offers shadowing opportunities to college students and other adults, and will allow high school juniors and seniors to sign up for shadowing opportunities beginning Feb. 14, 2023. Students will be able to sign up for shadowing experiences across various healthcare careers on the Clinician Nexus platform.
    • ·       Our two summer internship programs for high school students, the Louis Stokes Internship Program and the Science Internship Program, offer paid experiences in clinical and non-clinical settings. Students enrolled in these programs will also participate in wellness activities and leadership training.

    For more information about our programs, please visit our website at this link. If you have questions or are a school/district administrator interested in partnering on academic programs, please email

    On Nov. 29, 2022, members of Ohio ACTE and OACTS provided testimony to Ohio Senate Leaders and the Ohio Senate Education Committee in support of Senate Bill 178. Under Senate Bill 178, the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) would be under a cabinet-level official in the governor’s office, and be renamed "Department of Education and Workforce," DEW for short. The cabinet official would oversee the two divisions of the department - primary and secondary education and workforce training. Currently, the state school board oversees the ODE.

    See the source imageThe Ohio ACTE Board has unanimously approved Maggie Hess to be the Interim Executive Director of Ohio ACTE.  Maggie is currently the Executive Director of the Ohio Association of Career Tech Superintendents and will continue her work for OACTS while also serving Ohio ACTE as the Interim Executive Director. 

    Maggie’s career has been spent advocating and leading career tech education as a Special Education and Campus Director at Great Oaks in addition to almost thirteen years as the Superintendent for the Warren County Career Center.  The past five years, she has lead OACTS.    

    As we work to solidify a long term solution for a permanent Executive Director of Ohio ACTE, we are honored to have Maggie Hess lead the process over the next several months to continue the great work Christine Gardner accomplished during her 16 year tenure with Ohio ACTE.  Although Christine will certainly be missed by all and difficult to replace, we will carry on the lasting legacy Chris left behind in advocating for Ohio’s Career Tech community.
