Career Pathways

The innovative Career Pathways Initiative program uses federal funds allocated to the state to provide education and job training to low-income residents with children. Arkansans get the credentials they need for a high-wage, high-skill job, and plan a career path towards future opportunities and advancement. The program sees high success rates because it removes common barriers to success by providing wrap-around supports such as transportation vouchers, child care, case management, career coaching, and tutoring options.

In order to enroll in the Arkansas Career Pathways program, you must qualify to receive benefits.  Basic eligibility requirements include:

  • You must be an adult caretaker, parent or relative of a child under the age of 21 who lives within the home
  • You must have annual family income below 250% of the federal poverty level (about $50,400 annually for a family of 3)
