Office of Adult Career Pathways

Our adult employment and training programs provide adults who traditionally face multiple barriers to employment, and who are in need of enhanced educational and supportive services, to be successful in securing long-term family sustaining wages.

Our programs work to eliminate racial disparities and large economic gaps in Minnesota, to increase Minnesotans’ literacy and access to high-growth and high-wage jobs, and to increase the number of women in high-wage, high-demand, nontraditional occupations.
