Arkansas Career Pathways
Pathways is a new program that enables your local two-year college to offer those who qualify free career training and college classes. In addition to free training and college classes, the Pathways program may be able to help you overcome the barriers that have kept you from getting the training and education you need, help with things such as child care, transportation, career counseling, and job search after training for low income parents.
