SCHOOL BASED PARTNERS
Leveraging Community Talent
RELATIONSHIP AND RESOURCES
to promote student engagement
OHuddle is passionate about mobilizing communities to wrap support around their school district. By engaging volunteer mentors to meet with school-nominated students, OHuddle is able to leverage community talent and resources to serve schools. These partnerships expand to impact building culture through resource development, data management, service coordination, intervention planning, and teacher self-care. All service is informed with evidence-based practice.
OHuddle supports a dedicated Site Coordinator in each of the buildings we serve. Site Coordinators train and supervise up to 80 mentor-student relationships with the goal for the same mentor to serve the same student in recurrent years.

Starting the School Year
Meeting State Requirements
OHuddle meets the partnership requirements extended by ODE's 5 year "Each Child Our Future" strategic plan. Serving the state's expectations that schools promote equitable access to real-world asset development and social-emotional learning opportunities, OHuddle uses research-based principles to meet strategies 7 and 10.
Involvement with a 1:1 volunteer mentor, who follows the students throughout their career, has yielded an average 75% attendance improvement, 77% reduction in discipline, and 23% academic improvement for students served by OHuddle.
By creating evidence-based resource toolkits towards academic intervention as well as graduation opportunities such as the "Ohio Means Job Seal of Approval," OHuddle also provides a means for community members to provide advanced career and college readiness opportunities for students served with mentors.
Finally, OHuddle's rich data collection reports are individualized for each district and ease the burden of state-mandated CCIP reporting for schools.
