- Case Management: Through a collaborative process of planning, advocacy and coordination of services, job developers work with our clients to help remove barriers to employment such as lack of transportation, housing, legal services, or proper nutrition.
- Work-Based Training opportunities include occupational skills training for in-demand industries, on-the-job training for specific occupations, customized training developed for specific employers. PathStone assists individuals to enter and advance in their desired career path in all industry sectors.
- Credentialing & Certifications – Career counseling and financial assistance to pursue education and/or occupational training that produces credentials, licenses, and certifications that are portable—accepted across employers, occupations, or regions—to increase employability and opportunities.
- Job Placement and Retention Services – In partnership with a variety of employers, PathStone assists with job placement. After placement, our job developers continue to work with employee and employer to ensure performance improvement and job retention. Coaching, mentoring, ongoing skills assessment and enhancement and career planning are services offered to promote retention.
Our mentoring programs target two groups: high school students 14-17 and individuals returning from incarceration and entering/re-entering the workforce. Mentoring increases the chances of job retention and high school graduation. Our mentors provide support and positive role modeling for participants facing new challenges, life transitions, and career decisions. These mutually beneficial relationships drive learning and development for both mentors and mentees.
