Pathways Training

We offer a tiered inmate vocational certification program that provides training in culinary skills, service, sanitation and general foodservice production. Upon completion of each level of our program, inmates receive certification for the level completed. After the third level, the inmate will earn ServSafe certification, a nationally recognized food safety standard.

Graduates of this program have an improved opportunity to successfully compete in the job market after being released back into their communities.
