About Us

About Us

Stemming from a 2011 report from a Harvard Graduate School study, Pathways to Prosperity was born when Jobs for the Future and Harvard Graduate School invested in helping state develop The Pathways to Prosperity (PTP) model. PTP offers the opportunity to enhance the development of academically and technically rigorous and robust career pathways.

Since the initiative’s inception, the Northeast Region of North Carolina has adapted the concepts to allow for regional creation and local customization. Developing regional pathways is a promising practice, especially in rural areas with limited resources and employment opportunities. This website is dedicated to sharing our regional work, encouraging collaboration, and promoting enriching career experiences for our youth.
