Thank you for your interest in working with Pathway to Education!
Pathways to Education Canada is a charitable organization that helps youth in low-income communities graduate from high school and successfully transition into post-secondary education or training. Pathways to Education addresses systemic barriers to education by providing leadership, expertise and a communitybased program proven to lower dropout rates. Founded in 2001, Pathways operates in 13 communities across Canada, with programs in Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Manitoba.
Pathways is working to make Canada a Graduation Nation by helping youth overcome the barriers that can stand in the way of education with a program that provides academic, financial and social supports. The results of this program have been groundbreaking, reducing high school dropout rates by more than 70 per cent, and increasing the rate at which youth go on to college or university by as much as 300 per cent.
