Clubhouse to College/Career Pathways To Success

The C2C Pathways to Success program provides selected youth the opportunity to focus on a specific area of technology (e.g., web development, 3D design, video production and  graphic design), to develop their workforce readiness skills and gain real-world work experience through job shadowing and a paid internship placement. Staff guides the participants through the 12-month program providing college and career guidance.  This program is offered free of charge to Gold Crown Clubhouse members and interested young adults, 16-21 years of age.

Info:

Applications for the 2021-2022 year are now closed. Please fill out an interest form if you’d like to stay up to date on all the C2C program offerings for next year. Thank you to all those who applied!

Timeline:

September - May:   Working with our national partner, Project Invent, C2C teens will tackle the engineering design process to identify and address a need in their community and work together to create a solution to solve it. This hands-on engineering-based project will take on all the business components of a real-world start-up including opportunities in business, finance, human resources, marketing and communications. The hope is by working with local and national partners, participants will create a product that provides access to recreational activities for youth with special needs.  Our workforce development program will also include career research, resume writing, mock interviews as well as college and career readiness training. Students will also take their learning into their own hands and work independently, with the support and knowledge of our Gold Crown Staff, to gain new technology skills in the areas of their choice

June - August: Paid Summer Internship placement for all C2C students in areas including business, hospitality, health sciences & medicine, technology, engineering, marketing, digital media, arts, culture, law, public safety, skilled trades and technical sciences.
