Jr. Apprentice at the CT Forum on the Future of Higher Education

On December 1st, a couple of Pathways Academy Jr. Apprentice students, Edwin Castellano and Joshua Kassahun, and our program Director and program Coordinator, Carla Hawkins and Rachel Litvin, had the opportunity to attend the CT Forum on the future of Higher Education. Learning about the innovation occurring in the Higher Ed community gives us hope for the future of our students (many of whom are about to go off to college!).

A big thanks to The Connecticut Forum for offering our students tickets and allowing us to be a part of this dialogue!


Jr. Apprentice Celebrates the beginning of our 2016-2017 year!

On October 23rd and 25th, Jr. Apprentice supporters came together to celebrate our recently selected students, their families, and our professional-mentors. Attendees were welcomed by our new Director, Carla Hawkins, and had an opportunity to hear from our students about why they applied to the program and what their career and educational goals are. Greg Jones, the founder of Legacy Foundation, was our inspiring guest speaker.

Here’s to an exciting year ahead!
