CINCINNATI - A local agency is accepting applications for a program that provides educational and occupational guidance to at-risk youth in Hamilton County.
The Cincinnati-Hamilton County Community Action Agency will kick-off its YouthBuild program for 2013 on Saturday.
Based on a U.S. Labor Department model, the program works with at-risk youth ages 16-24. “At-risk” includes people who have dropped out of school, have been in foster care or have been incarcerated, among other factors.
Conducted in partnership with Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, YouthBuild offers support services such as a monthly stipend, child care and transportation assistance.
Applicants must live in Hamilton County.
The kick-off event will be held 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday at the agency’s office, located at 1740 Langdon Farm Road, in Bond Hill.
The Community Action Agency is a private, nonprofit organization that has served low-income children and adults throughout Hamilton County for nearly five decades. It provides assistance with employment, supportive services, home energy bills, home weatherization, early childhood education, housing and youth programs.

Is a surprising move, Procter & Gamble announced late Thursday that A.G. Lafley is replacing retiring chairman and CEO Bob McDonald. Lafely is taking over immediately.
