The Aum Foundation offers the Pathway 2 Success (P2S) Program for under-resourced female high school students in their senior year. The purpose of the program is to allow the student to gain experience and insight into their career path, while also building life skills to aid them in breaking generational poverty and prepare them for the workforce. We encourage our participants to develop and implement a comprehensive education and career plan through mentoring, enrichment programs, and job shadowing. The end goal of our program is to provide our girls with the tools to achieve higher education degrees', economic independence, and, in turn, give back to the community.



The Pathway 2 Success or P2S program is designed for under resourced female high school students to identify their academic and career goals through a combination of the following six components:

1. Mentoring – It’s not what you know, it's whom you know! The role of the mentor is to guide the mentee through personal and professional knowledge, experience, and expertise. Each student is thoughtfully paired with a professional woman from our community. Our mentors volunteer their time and resources to make a vital difference in the P2S program.  The amazing thing is they get out of it as much as the students.
2. Enrichment/Life Skill Classes – Knowledge is power! Girls will be empowered through classes that will orient them towards personal, academic, and professional success. These classes guide the students through a variety of topics to prepare them for the “real world”.  All classes are presented by subject matter experts with topics ranging from Conflict Resolution, Interviewing Techniques, Budgeting & Financing to Self Esteem, Communication, and Time Management.
3. Career Exploration –You don’t know what you don’t know! An amazing component of the Pathway 2 Success Program is the Career Exploration.  The Aum staff reaches out to local professionals to arrange for job shadowing experiences. This helps students get a real-world feel for jobs. Not only does it help students decipher their career path, but it makes for an advantageous addition to college and professional resumes.
4. Private ACT Tutoring – Each student is provided with private, personalized ACT tutoring to facilitate full-ride scholarships to colleges and universities. With achieving higher scores comes the opportunity to minimize the financial burden college students face.
5. Financial Assistance – Graduates of the P2S program can receive up to $2,000.00 in scholarships from Aum Foundation. Scholarships are paid directly to their school of choice, to be used towards any higher education or trade skill certification.
6.  Tools for School – Each student who participates in ACT tutoring is given a TI-84 calculator. Then, upon completion of the 10-month program, each student will be eligible to receive a laptop computer to assist in their college studies.
