What is the PATHS Program...

The Postsecondary Access and Training in Human Services (PATHS) Certificate Program prepares individuals for jobs as Direct Support Professionals and Child Care Professionals. Students begin the two-year PATHS Certificate program with a Summer I  session. This enables students to get familiar with the campus and bus schedules and begin their course work.

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.
