Pathways to Education

Pathways to Education Kingston

Pathways to Education is a unique community-based program designed to increase high school graduation rates in designated neighbourhoods. The program offers tutoring, mentoring, financial support, and advocacy to support high school students to successfully transition to post-secondary education, training or meaningful employment. 

Through the collective power of partnerships, Pathways to Education’s innovative program is preparing youth for tomorrow and working to break cycles of poverty. The Pathways to Education program has worked with over 1250 students in Kingston since 2010.

The Pathways to Education program offers:

  • Academic tutoring sessions in all subjects;
  • Mentoring activities include opportunities to connect with the land through an Indigenous World View, a cooking program, campus tours, YMCA memberships, training and skill-building opportunities;
  • Financial incentives such as No Frills grocery cards;
  • Post-secondary scholarships for $500 for each year enrolled in the program up to $2,000 after four years; and
  • Assistance with career exploration and planning post-secondary options for all students.
