Strategy Formation

Whether you are growing, merging or looking to clarify your purpose, Pathways Consultants supports you and your organization utilizing the approaches and tools that best meet your current and future needs. Effective organizations and programs are rooted in a clear picture of the change you want to achieve and the key activities that drive you towards success. We believe the work to achieve this clarity doesn’t need to be costly or time consuming. We specialize in helping organizations small and large, government and nonprofit, build powerful frameworks (Theories of Change and Logic Models, for example) to guide program planning, implementation and evaluation.

Technical Assistance and Capacity Building

Pathways Consultants works alongside staff to build infrastructure and capacity to better serve clients. We help your organization incorporate best-practices in a variety of areas including management, human resources, organizational development, communication, assessment, and more. Our expertise includes workforce development, youth development, K–12 after school programming, Career and Technical Education (CTE), Workforce Investment Act (WIA), and more.

Training and Professional Development

We offer engaging, results-oriented professional development workshops for K–12, community college, youth and workforce development organizations.
