How it works
Pathway to Work is an on-the-job training program conducted in your local community. Paid work experience takes place at a partner’s job site, with additional classroom instruction taking place at an Opportunity Village campus.
While training at the worksite, each participant will undertake four hours of individualized instruction, job coaching, and work experience involving three to five different job tasks.
At an Opportunity Village campus, in-depth instruction includes things such as:
- viewing training videos
- participating in discussions about employer workplace expectations and task performance
- practicing specific skills and techniques used on the job.
Participants will also have access to Opportunity Village job developers who assist with developing a resume, applying for jobs, preparing for interviews, and job placement and support — during the new hire process and beyond.
