Check out the inaugural issue of The PACES Post, the CAU PACES program’s new quarterly newsletter!
This newsletter features important news, upcoming events, and a celebration of members’ achievements.
The Pathways to Academic and Career Exploration to Success (PACES) program supports youth in foster care, ages 16-21, in their successful transition to and retention in post-secondary education, career technical education and workforce readiness.
Our devoted coaches are supportive adults who assist youth with 1:1 meetings and assessments to create and implement plans for education/employment success. Coaches guide youth to self-advocate by utilizing social networking and professional communication skills to coordinate with and leverage local and state-wide support systems and resources.
Referrals for PACES are accepted through Essex County and Union County DCP&P and DCF.
