Registration Open for Career Pathways Program
Submitted by the City of Evanston


 “Building Career Pathways to Sustainable Employment,” a pilot program for Evanston teens and young adults age 18-26 is now open for registration. The program was created by the City of Evanston’s Youth and Young Adult Division and Youth Job Center of Evanston. It will provide 15 low- to moderate-income Evanston participants with subsidized wages and funding for continued educational advancement directly aligned with each participant’s career pathway plan, as well as supportive services, career counseling, educational support and transportation assistance. An example of educational advancement is paid training to become a Certified Nursing Assistant with a career pathway plan leading to LPN certification.

Participating employers will provide a long-term commitment to the participants through permanent employment after participants successfully complete on-the-job training and attain credentials.
