Helping You Take Care of Your Family

Supporting your family is important to you.  If you are new to the work force or have work experience, PATHs can help you develop new skills and improve your income potential. PATHs provides this opportunity with classes, coaching and internship placement. You get a chance to participate in a supervised work experience to help prepare you for successful employment.

After finishing the course, we help you look for and find a job. Local employers participate as PATHs trainers and provide job sites. Often our participants are hired on a permanent basis after being trained.
