The City of Eureka’s Pathway to Payday is a four-day employment workshop that takes place in partnership with the Betty Kwan Chinn Day Center. This event focuses on the enhancement of application, resume & interview skills, & offers participants the opportunity to interview with real employers for real jobs, receiving tangible feedback that they can apply to future interviews.
To date, Pathway to Payday has garnered a 90+% success rate with participants who complete all four days receiving either a second interview or a job offer.
This week, 23 of our valued community members completed the December 2019 Pathway to Payday event while 22 of these individuals received either a second interview or a job offer. Further, the participating businesses had overwhelmingly positive feedback about the candidates they interviewed.

Or that Sacagawea was 16 with a baby when she helped Lewis and Clark (who somehow remind us of Bill and Ted) map the western territories? Adults made the history books, but plenty of teens helped make history.=
