The Pathways program is a collaboration between School District 11 Career Technical Education, PPCC,and NCS Rotary Club. Students receive mentoring and financial support for highly qualified high school students who have a strong interest in non-college type careers.
Pathways is the “wide end of the funnel” as we assist students who are making important decisions before they cross the stage at their high school graduation.
A Different Path
Students are assisted and mentored as they participate in internships, shadowing and apprenticeships.
We work with junior and senior high school students to identify areas of interest for each student and connect them with internships and mentors in the community.
50% of our students are choosing to continue a two-year or four-year college education certification or degree program, and 50% are choosing internships that lead to a job directly out of high school.
