Deadlines for actions in Pathways to Environmental Careers
Updated over a week ago

Throughout the Pathways to Environmental Careers program, there are specific deadlines in the various stages of your journey as you work towards completing an employer project and receiving your stipend payment.

Stage expirations are time limits set within the program to ensure that stipends are available for learners who actively engage and work towards completing employer projects. Stage expirations are implemented for different steps of the program, each with its own timeframe and outcomes if they expire. Allowing any of these stages to expire could result in a strike per our three strike system. You are notified of the pending stage expiration date throughout your ECO Pathways journey to help ensure that you never miss a step.
