The new Post-Secondary Pathways (PSP) program connects at-risk students with careers in tech and healthcare via certification programs taken while completing their high school diploma. Finding themselves on a path to dropping out, these students use PSP to help them attain a livable wage and a pathway out of property. The program launched in 2017, and since then 200 students students have been placed in higher-paying jobs with ample growth opportunities.
“We teach students not just about getting a job but about achieving career mobility,” said Daniel Diaz, Executive Director of ESH. “Our groundbreaking PSP program sets up our youth to attain credentials and skills that increase their employability. We help them chart career paths in their industry, always encouraging further education and growth within the sector.”
