Despite work experience and good references, for three years Aziz Iscandari could not find a job to help pay for school. "Howard County schools were great academic preparation," says Aziz, "but it's been very hard to figure out how to pay for college, since my family cannot afford the tuition, room and board." Aziz worked with a dedicated team of PATH leaders for two years to secure funding for and create our READY environmental jobs program, landing him a job as a Crew Leader. "Every penny I earn is going toward my education, and it's helping me prepare for the future. I've also learned how the things we do affect our delicate ecosystem and hope this will help us save the environment in the long-term."
