TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Tallahassee Community College is launching a new program that assists active duty, retired, affiliated military people into becoming a student at the College.

The Pathfinders program recruits and provides guidance, support, resources, advocacy, financial literacy and a place of belonging to military members as they transition to students at TCC.

“TCC has always been known for being a veteran-friendly campus but we are raising the bar as we launch the Pathfinders program,” said Danny James, Accessibility Specialist at the College. “This is an exciting time and I look forward to the opportunity to help guide them along the way.”

The Pathfinders program focuses on mentoring military students and helping them adjust to the college experience. The program also assists students by preparing them for a chosen career path or future academic goals.

The Pathfinders program is located in the College’s Veterans Success Center, which serves as a one-stop-shop for military students and their family members.
