About Pathways to Success
A coalition of Coachella Valley institutions and organizations led by the Coachella Valley Workforce Excellence, Inc. (CVWE, Inc.) have created a regional structure to link the award of scholarships and focused student success support for low income undergraduate students to a valley-wide effort that is creating a broad range of newly developing career pathways as a means of diversifying the local economy.
This initiative links business, education, regional economic development and a variety of local non-profits under the unifying goal of improving college going rates and college success for our under-served youth. This proposal named "Pathways to Success", is the first effort of its kind in the Coachella Valley and seeks to build upon existing partnerships that have been created by the CVWE, Inc. through its Career Pathways Initiative.
In addition, Pathways to Success will also serve as a mechanism to link together the various scholarship giving organizations and student support systems in the Coachella Valley for the benefit of scholarship recipients. The proposal capitalizes on the history of wide spread collaborative initiatives that have been successfully implemented in the Coachella Valley.
