Dallas Challenge operates a truancy prevention or truancy intervention program called "PATHWAYS TO SUCCESS". This program was developed to provide students and their parents with a working knowledge of Texas state truancy laws and the possible consequences of violating such laws. Pathways to Success helps attendees understand the long-term consequences of truant behavior and how education play a key role in their future success. The program helps youth learn how to overcome their obstacles of school attendance and develop specific action steps to take to get them back on track.

The course features curriculum for both youth and their parents with the objective to prevent further truant behavior AND improve overall family function by providing families with the knowledge and steps to help the students become more successful in school.
