PathwayConnect is a one-year, low-cost educational program that mixes the flexibility of online academic courses, religious education, and the benefits of weekly face-to-face gatherings with other students. The program helps students develop confidence, become self-reliant, and build leadership experience — all of which help students get the gospel down into their hearts, become capable learners, and prepare to lead and support their families. PathwayConnect is currently available in more than 500 locations and 145 countries.
