Sky's the Limit Album > 17 laptops to Pathways Hamilton!
The Bennetto and Keith neighbourhoods, located in Hamilton's diverse North End, serve as the Hamilton Pathways to Education Program sites. The community includes a mix of industrial and residential locations. Both neighbourhoods are often characterized as having lower socio-economic, higher level of immigrants, greater than average single-parent families, higher unemployment rates and greater than average high school drop out rates. What is often lost in this description is the richness of history, the strength, resilience and generosity of these communities.

The Pathways to Education program was launched in Hamilton in the fall of 2009 after which the North Hamilton Community Health Centre identified a 45% drop out rate for students living in the north end of Hamilton. Through collaboration with the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board, the Hamilton Wentworth Catholic District School Board and Mohawk College, among others, the Health Centre worked with Pathways Canada to gain the full approvals necessary to launch the program.
