PEOPLE AND PLACES

Pathways

Propel connects communities and builds systems of low-cost and publicly-funded pathways for young people to earn credentials and gain economic mobility. To do this, we have built a funding and programmatic model that can be replicated by any community nationwide.

Propel launched in New Jersey and Louisiana in 2019 with career pathways in skilled trades and healthcare. We are excited to engage with a number of employers and training partners as we create a system that seamlessly connects education and work, equipping young people with the skills, social networks, and supports they need to have stable, upwardly-mobile job, and a clear path to college if they so choose.
