PATH is proud to offer a wide variety of services that help young people overcome barriers to employment and achieve personal stability. We offer programs tailored to the needs of both young adults still in school and those not currently in education, employment, or training.
Work Experience Program
Young adults enrolled in school participate in PATH's Work Experience Program as part of their PATH membership. We place qualified applicants at a local job site, where they are paid to work and acquire basic job skills that will help to qualify them for future jobs. In-school youth may only participate during summer break. Out-of-school youth may participate year round.
Post-Secondary Education and Trade Certification
Qualified applicants have the option of receiving tuition assistance for up to two years of college (including materials necessary to attend college like textbooks), or for training for in-demand occupational certifications such as for CDL, STNA, and LPN certifications.
Incentives for Students
PATH's incentives program motivates students to pursue academic excellence throughout the school year. Qualified applicants can receive monetary rewards each quarter (secondary) or semester (post-secondary) for achievements including maintaining a 3.0 GPA or missing two or fewer days of school per grade period.
PATH can pay for driver's education courses in addition to compensation for driver's examination, temporary and permanent licensing fees.
PATH career specialists and OhioMeansJobs center staff are both able to help PATH participants with creating their first resume or updating an existing resume to best emphasize a participant's best skills, experience, and qualifications.
Work & School Supplies
PATH can pay for a variety of work or school related expenses for qualified participants. Whether it’s a cap and gown for graduation, or clothes for work, or license fees, PATH has you covered!
