Bluffton Self Help is excited to announce a new program - Path2Success! This client-centered program will help adult learners identify individual goals and define their unique path to success. What makes this program different and unique is the way in which you travel the path. You are NOT alone on this journey. Path2Success will walk with you every step of the way providing support, mentorship, peer learning opportunities and much more. Let’s look at each part of Path2Success in more detail.
To begin your journey, you will meet with a Path2Success coordinator in an informal “Getting to Know You” 30 minute personal 1 on 1 session. She/he will help you identify your personal goals, the challenges you currently face and assist with setting your roadmap to success. Once created, your coordinator will set up next steps to get you ready for your journey ahead. Best of all, everything in Path2Success is free of charge.
You are NOT Alone:
You will always have at least one dedicated advocate who partners with you to follow your progress, assist with assignments, help give advice and guide you as you travel. When usual bumps in the road occur, your advocate is there to help reassure you and get you back on your path to success. Along with your advocate you will be supported by various Path2Success volunteers, trainers, programs, resources, peer groups, networking opportunities and mentors to keep you on track to achieve the goals you’ve established.
Our needs are as unique as each individual. As such we are ready to help support you from start to finish no matter what your challenges may be - All in One Place! If you need food, you will be provided access to our food pantry. If you need clothes for that important interview, we have a confident clothing closet.
