ABOUT PTI TRADE SCHOOL

Pathways To Independence Trade School was created based on understanding the need to build OVERCOMERS. After a decade of research through trials and studies on Restoring Families Across America, the data tells a compelling story. The analysis included both observational and interventional clinical studies performed by one primary investigator with over 700 subjects. The primary target market was underserved and rural communities, while 90% of the trial subjects were black males.  The trial subjects ranged in age from 10 to 56, and they proved Frederick Douglass was correct when he said, “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”
