PATHS | Career PATHS | PATHS 2 Success
Televerde Foundation PATHS programs help currently and formerly incarcerated women Prepare, Achieve, and Transform for Healthy Success. Our approach inspires creativity, imagination, self-confidence, and social skills while addressing issues that cause recidivism. We seek to enable women to break the generational cycle of poverty and incarceration by becoming positive role models to change the lives of future generations and build stronger communities. All programs include personal and professional development, self-confidence and communication skills, and emphasize continuous learning and a growth mindset.
