The PATHS Program application is now open and available for applicants to apply for the 2022-2024 cohort!!

November 18, 2021

The Postsecondary Access and Training in Human Services (PATHS) Certificate Program prepares individuals for jobs as Direct Support Professionals and Child Care Professionals. Upon completing the two-year program at the Center on Disability and Development, participants earn a certificate that combines classroom instruction with hands-on career building experiences.

Students who have career aspirations to support people with disabilities, older community citizens, work with school districts or with children in child care settings are strongly encouraged to apply to the PATHS program. Successful candidates will complete their first year of required coursework. During the second year, our goal is to place PATHS students in a supervised practicum in the community. Students will be on-site learning hands-on skills to prepare them for their career. PATHS instructors provide a broad and unique base of training based on their professional experience.

The deadline for all application materials to be submitted is Monday, February 28, 2022.
