Pathways to Success: Creating Opportunities for Young Women to Thrive in Guadalajara, Mexico (Pathways)
Pathways to Success is a three-year initiative funded by The PepsiCo Foundation with the objective of empowering adolescent girls and young women to reach their full potential by providing them with quality education and employment opportunities. The program will achieve these aims through three key objectives: 1) equip young women with skills to succeed in life and work, 2) engage young women and their families to make informed life decisions while improving their access to additional support services, 3) raise awareness of the value of young women at the community and institutional levels.
Pathways’ implementation in Guadalajara aims to benefit at least 20,000 young women and adolescent girls over a three-year period. IYF will partner with technical and vocational public high schools, which represent different systems under the Sub-secretariat of Upper Secondary Education at the Mexican Ministry of Public Education: Colegio de Bachilleres del Estado de Jalisco, Colegio de Estudios Científicos y Tecnológicos de Jalisco and Colegio de Educación Profesional Técnica de Jalisco. The Pathways program will advance PepsiCo’s strategic goal of enabling 1.5 million young women to progress through school and be successful in the workforce.
