WHAT WE DO
BBB Center for Ethics was created to bring badly needed ethics education to our community. We deliver powerful tools, training and resources to vocational students and underserved youth. With the support of Chris Klug, Director of Strategic Partnerships and Combat Veteran, we’ve expanded our reach to veterans.
Our country’s servicemen and women deserve better workplace resources. The Center is connecting with veterans entering vocational rehabilitation or coping with professional obstacles. Our programs will help them access better working opportunities, reach greater ethical competency, and make healthy career choices.
We're partnering with the Cincinnati VA Medical Center to provide soft skills courses to veterans going through the Vocational Rehabilitation Program. Many veterans trying to land jobs post-military have had to overcome PTSD and substance abuse. Our goal is to reintegrate them into the workforce with biweekly classes throughout the year to teach them about ethics in the workplace, ethics around social media and scams that target veterans.
Furniture Fair, VA Medical Center, Local 12 and BBB Center for Ethics join together to bring awareness and support to local women veterans transitioning from the frontlines to the home front. The Women's Military Event is a community effort to recognize and celebrate female veterans in Greater Cincinnati. We hold a drive to collect essential hygiene products, and host an event to provide women with community resources they may need.
With the support of ProMaster Home Repair and Handyman, we're giving a $2,500 scholarship to a Cincinnati State student who is an active duty military member or veteran. The scholarship is rewarded to the student who best represents ethics and a willingness to interact thoughtfully with an ethical dilemma in an essay.
CHRISTMAS TOY DRIVE
During the holiday season we hold a toy drive with our Accredited Businesses and Ethics Allies members. These toys are donated to the Cincinnati VA Medical Center to give to families of local military members who are deployed with children at home.
