HEMI mentors assist, encourage, and support student academic achievement, and help create a direct pathway to higher education. HEMI is a partnership between Hamilton County Board of County Commissioners, Hamilton County Job and Family Services, the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, Great Oaks Career Campuses, and Mount St. Joseph University.
