Palmer Pathways


We are excited to announce our newest initiative which serves  disconnected young adults between the ages of 18-26 in our community. Through  the Palmer Pathways initiative,  we  will serve talented young adults who are not currently employed or enrolled in school and are interested in pursuing a career in the trades. Scholars selected to participate in the Palmer Pathways Initiative will participate in over 100 hours of training geared toward empowering them to identify their strengths, clarify their career interests, and identify the best fit career path.

Much More than a Scholarship!

Are you a High School Junior planning to graduate by August 2022?

Our Legacy Program serves current high school juniors within Pierce County that are interested in furthering their education beyond high school. We go above and beyond to ensure the success of our Scholars, and participation in our program required a high level of commitment.
