Maine Career pathways are a series of educational and training opportunities connected with support services. The program aids individuals in obtaining employment while addressing the necessity for a skilled workforce. In addition, Maine Career Pathways also prepares participants for advancement to higher levels of education, work, and payment.
Maine Career Pathways targets low-income, low-skilled individuals facing difficulties such as financial hardship, underemployment, under developed literacy skills, and limited educational attainment. Those with developed literacy skills and a high school diploma will be integrated into the program at the point best suited to their needs. The program allows those unemployed and possessing a two or four-year degree to earn a second college credential in conjunction with opportunities for re-employment.
