"Pathways to Work" Program Changing Lives for the Better

This article appeared in a June 2016 issue of the student newsletter.

Sharing Life Outreach's primary goal is to come alongside individuals and families who need help obtaining the basic necessities of life. The organization offers community members a food pantry, clothes closet, utility assistance and gas cards. 

The nonprofit also offers educational programs to enrich the lives and future of its clients. And that's where El Centro College comes in. 

In 2014, with support from the United Way, El Centro added stackable credentials for nurse aide students to continue their health career pathway to include EKG and phlebotomy training. This additional training allowed Sharing Life clients like Keyuna Carter to qualify for work as a patient care technician. 

To learn more, watch Keyuna's story in the video above.
