[ARCHIVED] Positive Path Program Accepting Applications

The city is accepting applications for its Positive Path Program for city residents through April 2, 2023. Classes will begin on Monday, April 24.

The Positive Path Program is a temporary part-time training program that offers exposure to science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (S.T.E.A.M.) careers, mentorships, hands-on training and personal and professional development. 

Participants, called apprentices, earn $15 per hour for 20 hours per week. During the five-month program, they will also have the opportunity to earn their GED as well as other certifications. Upon completion of the program, six months of follow up support services will be provided.
