Carizon Celebrates 10 Years of Delivering Pathways to Education

Carizon Celebrates 10 Years of Delivering Pathways to Education

Carizon is pleased to be celebrating its 10th year of delivering the Pathways to Education program in Kitchener.

Pathways to Education in Kitchener supports 600 youth each year from the Chandler Mowat and Kingsdale neighbourhoods, with the key objective of breaking the cycle of poverty by helping youth from low-income communities to graduate from high school and transition to post-secondary education, training, and meaningful employment. For 10 years in Kitchener-Waterloo, this award-winning program has resulted in measurable social change.

We are celebrating this anniversary by inviting guests to an exhibit of student art pieces as they express their Pathways journey through painting, poetry, drawing, photography and mixed media. Student artists will be on hand that evening to share their stories and interpret their artistic renditions.

We will also be sharing a retrospective of Pathways’ impact over 10 years and the launch of a new pilot project based on the success of delivering Pathways in Kitchener called “Youth Getting Connected.” With financial support from the Lyle S. Hallman Foundation and in partnership with local school boards, Youth Getting Connected will be delivered in Victoria Hills and Centreville Chicopee neighbourhoods to support Grade 8 students who have been identified as being at-risk of not graduating from school.

Members of the public are invited to a free drop-in to view the students work on Thursday, November 15th from 2 – 6 p.m.
