Pomo Pathways Pilot Project

Pomo Pathways Pilot Project

Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians and Mendocino College are collaborating on a pilot project called POMO PATHWAYS.

22195429_2023369894558379_4016388140647089939_nPOMO PATHWAYS is a three semester sequence of classes offered by Mendocino College that takes students from pre-college level through college-level math and English and prepares them to pursue a degree.  These courses are for everyone who needs entry level courses, especially parents who want to start a new career or go back to college.  This pilot project is for recent high school graduates or community members who have been out of school for an extended period of time.  There is no testing, no placement and no GED required to enroll in these courses.

Through our collaboration with Mendocino College we have committed to provide multi-level support to our participants.  Mendocino College has pledged to provide onsite childcare, textbooks, a book bag, calculators, school supplies, fee tutoring, academic and mental health counseling.  In addition Coyote Valley will provide the facilities and breakfast for students and children each day of class.

Classes will be held a the Coyote Valley Education Center and Digital Media Lab on the Coyote Valley Reservation in Redwood Valley.  Classes are scheduled to begin Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9:00 A.M to 12:30 P.M. for the regular spring semester beginning January 23, 2018 (class decriptions Pomo Pathways).  The POMO PATHWAYS sign-up and orientation for students will be on October 10, 2017 at the Coyote Valley Community Center at 9:30 A.M. to 12:30 P.M.
