Clearing the Path: Building Opportunity for Equity through Education

Back to Archive

Faye Blake, the founder and executive director of Pathways to Success, joins the podcast this week to talk about how her nonprofit works to build equity in Sussex County by “filling in the gaps” that students can fall through on their way to a high school diploma.

DCF President & CEO Stuart Comstock-Gay hosts this conversation about how building trust is an essential first step toward building opportunity, and how Pathways to Success kept clearing the path during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pathways to Success is a Georgetown-based nonprofit with a mission to prepare youth, adults, and their families for successful lives, utilizing innovative and creative approaches in mentoring and education.

All six episodes in this third season of Building Opportunity will feature stories about how nonprofit organizations in Delaware are working to advance equity in their own unique ways.

In the DCF’s Building Opportunity in Delaware Podcast, President & CEO Stuart Comstock-Gay interviews people from around Delaware about how we can build opportunity for all people and strengthen our communities.
