The Career Pathways Program is funded by and FTA grant and works to provide the opportunity for careers in transit to new employees, with a special focus on low-income, minority, female, and veteran potential employees. The program includes both training for entry-level jobs in frontline positions and internships for college students. These programs are offered in cooperation with local community colleges as well as a community-based Cleveland nonprofit called El Barrio Workforce Development. El Barrio provides some of the training offered, including 4 weeks focused on job readiness and customer service skills, as well as helping with outreach and recruitment among women, veterans, minorities, and disabled people.
