Pathways to Work

Led by United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, Pathways to Work is a cross-sector collaboration of funders, employers and training providers working to create innovative solutions for moving entry-level workers into good middle skill jobs and ensure employers have a pipeline of skilled and ready-to-work employees. Job training and placement are key components of United Way’s community goal to move 250,000 people out of poverty permanently.
