Membership Frequently Asked Questions

What membership levels does the Exchange offer?

  • Level One membership is designed for organizations interested in developing a deeper understanding of EMPath’s coaching model and connecting with other professionals from member organizations.
  • Level Two membership is designed for organizations that are ready to or are already implementing the model. Level Two members work with the Exchange to track and share outcomes.
  • Level Three membership is designed for organizations that wish to be certified by EMPath as delivering Mobility Mentoring® services. This includes replicating the model to fidelity and sharing outcomes.

What is the annual cost for each level of membership?

Click on the membership levels above for detailed pricing.

Why is the membership cost dependent on the number of participants served?

In order to provide organizations with the in-depth support conducive to implementing a Mobility Mentoring® informed model on a larger scale, EMPath licenses use of the Mobility Mentoring® model and tools based on the number of participants served. In an effort to keep membership costs attainable, as the number of participants served using a Mobility Mentoring® informed model increases, the license will expand at a lower cost per participant.

Does my organization have to implement the model?

No! Level one membership welcomes all organizations. Level Two membership is available for any member organization that is interested or ready to implement the model. If during the Level One membership term the organization would like to implement the model, the Exchange team will be happy to prorate the pricing and support your organization through the transition.

What outcomes and data will my organization share?

All members agree to complete our annual member survey. This survey consists of questions regarding the number of people your organization serve and how your organization is finding the resources and professional networking. Once an organization has implemented the coaching model for one year, members will submit data for an aggregated analysis.

How is my organization able to use EMPath’s trademarked terms?

Mobility Mentoring® and The Bridge to Self-Sufficiency® are registered trademarks of Economic Mobility Pathways. Trademarks symbolize the quality and excellence of the products and services that EMPath and Exchange members provide, and help maintain our collective reputation among our partners and competitors. To avoid loss of these values, trademarks must be used correctly. When using these terms in print, the trademark notice (®) should appear with the first or most prominent use of each trademark on each page. Level Two members may specify that your program or organization is implementing a Mobility Mentoring® informed model or approach. Level Three certified members may specify that your program or organization is delivering Mobility Mentoring® services.

How should I give credit if I edit or adapt the Bridge to Self-Sufficiency®?

If your organization edits or adapts the Bridge in any way, please be sure to include “Adapted from Economic Mobility Pathways’ Bridge to Self-Sufficiency®” on your Bridge adaptation. We also ask that you please share your adapted Bridge with the Exchange at theexchange@empathways.org.

Can my organization have access to the Career Compass™ without being a member
