Career Pathways Program
Career Pathways changes lives. We can help you get your GED, go to college and get career training. The program is designed to help you overcome barriers that may have kept you from getting the training and education you need. Career Pathways offers:
- Tuition assistance
- Child Care
- Career advising
- Job search after training
Career Pathways also will provide academic and personal advising, remediation in preparation for college entrance exams, tutoring, access to a computer lab, referrals to outside assistance agencies and coordination with other North Arkansas College assistance programs.
Approximately 80 percent of students enrolled in Career Pathways who successfully complete a certificate or degree remain employed in their chosen field after two years. Additionally, the number of successful students who no longer rely on governmental assistance and entitlements continues to grow each year.
To be eligible, you must be an adult caretaker, parent, or relative, of a child under the age of 21 living in the home, and meet the income guidelines at or below 250 percent of the federal poverty limit (example: family of four - maximum income is $60,750).
Student Leadership Council (SLC)
The Student Leadership Council is made up of Career Pathways students and helps fellow students with life’s unforeseen obstacles. Active members of SLC can get financial assistance for emergencies. Members participate by attending SLC meeting and playing a part in raising money for the emergency assistance fund.
