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 women better their economic situation by providing short term education and training opportunities that can lead to immediate, improved employment.

QVCC offers a number of certificate courses.  These certificate programs help women increase their earning capacity and ability to contribute towards their family’s economic welfare creating more self-reliant, self-sufficient women who become better role models for their children.

Each participant in the program is assigned a Pathway Partner that works as a coach, mentor and encourager to help the person be successful in their classes and other aspects of their life’s journey.

Start-up funding for this program was provided by a grant through the Women and Girls Fund of Northeastern Connecticut.
