“I’ve received blessings from the practical skills learned through BYU‑Pathway. The COVID-19 pandemic took a heavy toll on the company I worked for, and I was laid off along with many fellow employees. I began looking for a new job. Much to my surprise, one of my course lessons at that time was called “Finding a Better Job,”...I immediately applied the skills I learned and was able to find a great new company to work for.” Yuki Omine | Japan
“I wasn’t an active member when I first heard about PathwayConnect. It was God’s way to find me, His lost sheep. BYU-Pathway shaped my life. Those three semesters [in PathwayConnect] were the best times in school I have ever had. I learned so much from my institute classes that I went back to church.” Lavinia Tafuna | Tonga
“I’ve never seen anything this powerful in bringing into activity young adults who have wandered away.” Stanford Demars, Former Stake President | United States
More than 95% of returned missionaries who participate in BYU-Pathway are still active three years after returning home.
"I started BYU-Pathway the January after my divorce. I managed to work full time as a waitress, homeschool my kids, attend my Pathway meetings, and do well in my classes. My BYU-Pathway group, and the amazing classes, helped me overcome some of the hardest trials in my life as I adjusted to my new life on my own.” Dawson Turner | United States
