Give your student the edge they need to succeed!
What is the focus of this program?
Pathways provides students with key success skills to help them learn how to embrace change.
What will students be doing during the program?
Program concepts are underpinned in leadership theory, taught through engaging activities, games, and self-reflection activities and connected to student lives through debrief discussions.
What grade levels?
Pathways is best for 9th and/or 12th grade students as the program provides support for students during pivot transitional points in their lives.
How many students can participate in this program?
We work with a point person at each of the selected schools to schedule all 9th grade classes. Pathways is taught in individual classrooms for up to 30 students/class.
How long is the program?
Pathways runs as eight (8), class sessions. Each session is 45-minutes. Typically, schools schedule the program across 8 consecutive weekdays or 4 days/week across 2 consecutive weeks. Most schools schedule programs during 9th grade social studies, health, or career prep class periods.
What are the technology needs for the program?
The program is facilitated through Zoom and works best by having students signed on through individual devices (Chromebook, tablet). Students will mute their microphones and speakers and the classroom teacher will have their sounds and microphone turned on during the program. ELA provides a teacher orientation to review and test technology prior to the start of the program.
How can my school participate?
Schools are currently funded and selected by the Alabama Association of RC&D Councils. If you are interested in having your school considered for participation, please contact ELA Director of Operations, Heather Lee, firstname.lastname@example.org.
