PATHWAYS 2 SUCCESS
“Investing In the Future”
Our Pathways 2 Success Program began in 2018 as a joint partnership with Quinebaug Valley Community College. The purpose of the program is to help individuals better their economic situation by providing short term education and training opportunities that can lead to immediate, improved employment.
QVCC offers a number of Workforce Development & Community Education Certificate Programs that help individuals increase their earning potential. Most of these programs are designed to lead to immediate employment or further education. Some of these Certificate Programs are:
BUSINESS PROFESSIONAL, CERTIFIED NURSING ASSISTANT, FREELANCE WRITING, PERSONAL TRAINER, PHARMACY TECHNICIAN, REAL ESTATE TRAINING, SECURITY OFFICER, VETERINARY ASSISTANT.
To learn about the QVCC Workforce Development Certificate Programs, call QVCC at 860-932-4005 or check out www.QVCC.edu/programs/workforce-2-2/. Besides financial assistance, each participant in the Pathways 2 Success Program is assigned a Pathways Partner that works as a coach, mentor, and friend, offering encouragement, advice and help to ensure that each person is successful in their classes and other aspects of their life’s journey.
A portion of the funding for this program comes from a grant from the Community Foundation Northeast Area Women and Girls Fund.
