Career Education

Career exploration and skills building

The Career Education Program creates opportunities for students ages 14-21 to develop employability skills in real-life job settings. Students begin the Career Program at on-campus work sites. Each student’s ultimate goal is to transition into a highly structured off-campus community work site, where he or she can make a meaningful contribution and take ownership of individual responsibilities.

At the community work sites students increase their ability to communicate with supervisors and co-workers, follow instructions, and complete job-related assignments while maintaining emotional control. With the help of job coaches at each work site, students learn to independently monitor and regulate various tasks while working.

The Pathway School partners with local outlets of national chains as well as many independent businesses to help students develop confidence and interpersonal skills through on-the-job experience. Some of the community work sites currently participating in The Pathway School’s Career Education Program are:

Team Children
Computer Refurbishing

We are so happy to have the students from The Pathway School at our restaurant. Not only are the students learning valuable social and technical skills but our staff is learning from them as well. My staff finds joy working with the students and helping them reach their full potential as they grow as individuals in the community.
