Persistence Pathways

What Is Persistence Pathways?

Persistence supports students to and through their best fit post-secondary pathway.

We walk side-by-side with KIPPsters to explore their interests, skills, and priorities in order to navigate and identify their passion, purpose, and plan. We coach students toward choice-filled lives and fulfilling careers with upward mobility and financial freedom.

Who Do We Serve?

Currently, our Persistence team supports students beginning in their senior year of high school and continues that support for 2-year and 4-year college and university attending students through the first two years of their program. They focus on development of a passion, purpose, and plan, three key components essential to persisting to and through their best fit program.
