The Leadership Skills for College and Career guide includes facilitated activities that develop habits and skills for education and workplace success.

The Leadership for College and Career guide is informed by the Career Preparation for Adults through Training and Higher Education (CareerPATH), piloted across the City University of New York (CUNY) system. Eight CUNY colleges were part of the CareerPATH initiative, which ran from October, 2011, to September, 2015. The United States Department of Labor Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training grant program funded the initiative. The approach combined workforce development strategies, industry partnerships, classroom instruction, student coaching, and the creation of career pathways which combine access to both jobs and college for program participants.
