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 Pre-Apprenticeship,  we  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 Pre-Apprenticeship will participate in over 345 hours of training geared toward empowering them to identify their strengths, clarify their career interests, and identify the best-fit career path. Graduates of the 14-week program earn up to 8 certificates, receive mentorship, financial support, and direct or preferred entry into a number of apprenticeships.
