Career Pathways is a year-long program and matches students with a paid summer internship opportunity in San Antonio.
Participants meet twice a week for one hour after school at Family Service Neighborhood Place for engaging sessions, mentoring one-on-one meetings, and fun projects!
Industry-leading mentors from a wide-range of organizations throughout San Antonio lead workshops centered on technological and soft skills in the workforce. Career Pathways helps students develop necessary skills to play an active role in planning their future. The lessons range from technology-focused skills, such as learning to create a logo, to more soft skills, such as time management. Past Career Pathways sessions have included financial literacy and counseling, resume writing, social media for business and personal use, how to dress for your job, different career paths, and behind the scenes of different careers.
The program guarantees each participant a spot in our paid summer internship program. Through the summer intern program, Career Pathways participants are exposed to real working environments and gain even more hands-on experience.
