What the experts are saying

PathFinder leads students and their families to a deeper understanding of their possible employment interests through a combination of virtual group, individual work, and through in-person worksite exploration.

Combined, these experiences, with trusted PathFinder coaches, can raise a student’s understanding of what their interests are, and what types of work roles and settings are well matched to their needs.”
