A programme providing holistic support to youth from low-income communities to help them graduate from high school and move on to post-secondary education, training, or employment in order to break the cycle of poverty. Academic support, financial assistance and mentoring activities are offered alongside the school system to tackle existing barriers.
- Participation of young students is higher than 80% in communities where Pathways operates, and the retention rate in the programme is 87.9%.
- 74% of all students who graduated from high school while in the Pathways programme have gone on to post-secondary education or training.
In 2018, the initiative was presented in Rotterdam within the framework of the Accelerating Change for Social Inclusion (ACSI) project to study its local implementation.
