College Initiatives

Pathways to Careers (P2C)

Pathways to Careers (P2C) is a bold new initiative to Dunwoody College, designed to attract, train, and graduate under-resourced, underserved, and under-represented populations through close partnerships with educational, community, business, and industry leaders. P2C is a next-generation program purposed to reimagine the foundational success of more than 30 years with the former Youth Career and Awareness Program (YCAP). P2C will create greater access to a Dunwoody education, as well as meet the evolving and expanding workforce needs of technical businesses and industries. 

P2C has two chapters: Chapter 1 for high school juniors and seniors; and Chapter 2 for post traditional adult learners. Youth in Chapter 1 participate in a 3-week summer experience and will complete hands on activities with faculty and staff, participate in industry site tours, and complete group activities as a cohort. Students in both chapters participate in P2C monthly engagement sessions, designed in a hybrid format to provide interactive mentoring, leadership development, technical career exploration, and exposure to industry guest speakers and Dunwoody faculty. Faculty and Staff support for P2C programming is critical for youth to engage with our campus and learn about degree options and technical career fields. Consult the P2C Program Director or Executive Director of Community Partnerships for more details.
