Pathways to Education

A stay-in-school program designed to reduce poverty and its effects by lowering the dropout rate among high school students, from economically disadvantaged communities, and increase their participation in post-secondary programs.

Four Core Elements of Support:

  • Academic Support- through tutoring, and  group and career mentoring
  • Social Support- through goal oriented programming that includes workshops, events, and field trips
  • Financial Support- through scholarships, bus tickets/food vouchers
  • Counselling and Personal Support- from a Pathways Coach, discuss goals and achievements

Also provides the opportunity for adults to volunteer as tutors and mentors.

Program is funded through Pathways Canada.
