COMTO will grow and diversify by providing scholarship and mentoring initiatives to youth interested in pursuing careers in transportation; tracking programs for former COMTO interns and scholarship recipients; encouraging and supporting current COMTO members; and promoting relationships between COMTO and MBE/DBEs.
How we do it:
1. Create opportunities to offer annual scholarships and mentoring initiatives for middle, high school and college students.
2. Create tracking programs to facilitate continued engagement of former COMTO interns and scholarship recipients.
3. Encourage and support the professional development of COMTO members by educating their employers about the COMTO mission.
4. Promote MBE/DBE advancement through COMTO’s corporate partners and stakeholders.
COMTO has the potential to increase membership by reaching out to and partnering with the 36 university transportation centers in COMTO chapter locations.
