Adult Career Pathways Program

ACP_NVCC_and_NoVA_co-brand_1
Nonprofit NoVa launched a new partnership with the Adult Career Pathways Program (ACP) of Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA). 

ACP connects participants with NOVA career counselors who assist them in developing an education or training plan to earn a credential that will put them on a path toward advancement and greater financial security. Through ACP, NOVA is actively reaching out to adults who are underemployed or unemployed, low wage workers, or new immigrants who have sufficient English skills to undertake community college education. So far, 87% of students in ACP have successfully completed their first term of study.

For information on the success of NOVA’s ACP Program view a full program report here or visit the ACP website here.

What students say…

Erica is a student with unbelievable perseverance. She has made it on her own since she was teen, but knew she wanted to continue her education. When faced without the support of her family in the US and while balancing her academic and career goals, she took on the challenge of beginning college coursework. Though she faced challenges she thought she'd never make it through when applying for financial aid, the Adult Career Pathways program has helped her to succeed. She has been very successful at NOVA and is looking forward to transferring to George Mason University next year. She sees Adult Career Pathways as her beacon of hope and looks forward to giving back to others in her future career. Click on the video to view.

“The support and help of my counselor, I do not know what I would be doing with my life.” - Erica, ACP Student


Carolina is a single mom who needed to further her education in order to advance her career with Fairfax County Public School’s Head Start program.  She faced adversity with financial aid and academic divisions due to challenging life circumstances when she previously attended NOVA.  With help from her ACP counselor, Carolina was given a second chance to receive financial aid funds and renew her academic record. She is now a wonderful role model for her children, several colleagues who have also become ACP students and countless others who hear her story of success. Carolina has completed her Career Studies Certificate in Phlebotomy and is close to completing her AA in Liberal Arts at NOVA. She plans to transfer to GMU after completing her degree so she can pursue a bachelor’s degree in Social Work. She wants to inspire and assist others in pursuing their career and education goals.

“My counselor has done so many things for me that I would never image someone would do.” - Carolina, ACP Student
