Eckerd Connects Paxen
At Paxen, we provide GED instruction, testing, college preparation, career development, and job readiness training. We target youth ages 16-24 and all of our services are funded with WIOA funds. Eckerd Connects’ Paxen lives to fulfill its mission to provide fundamental life, education, and workforce skills that together form the building blocks for better lives. Paxen specializes in developing and delivering outcome-based programs that build academic, employment and life skills. The organization was founded in 1984, and has grown since then in terms of both locations and scope of services provided, including innovative new programs designed specifically for youth involved with juvenile justice.
Eckerd Connects partnered with Paxen in 2013 as part of its Project Bridge Program. We are now proud to have Paxen as an affiliated organization, as both organizations continue to provide much-needed second chances to children and their families.
