Pathways Improvement Scope

Students will attend an Empowering YOUth Summit and implement leadership activities from CTSO organizations. Spanish speaking (English Language Learners) students will hear about cultural business topics from the Hispanic community. Two Student Support Specialists (one located at Boyle Heights site and the other at our Pico-Union site) will be hired to assist students in registering for and participating in different WBL programs.
