The Pathways to Healthcare program, operated by Pima Community College and Pima County One Stop in Tucson, Arizona, helped low-income, low-skilled adults access and complete occupational training in one of five healthcare pathways. In addition, the program included academic and non-academic advising, scholarships, basic skills remediation as needed, and job search assistance. Abt’s three-year impact report found an increase in college credentials that take a year or more to earn but no impact on earnings. The program had no impact on employment overall but did increase employment in healthcare.The program was part of the Pathways for Advancing Careers and Education (PACE) Study, funded by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF).
