Situated on the outskirts of downtown Phoenix, the Garfield neighborhood is one of the poorest and most dangerous neighborhoods in the country. With a median income of $7,800 (for a family of four) and a crime rate ten times the state and national average, New Pathways for Youth seeks to address these needs through a transformative mentorship program.

Our evidence-based training and curriculum ensures that this is an effective 1-on-1 relationship for the youth and the mentor. The results are pretty extraordinary - after participating in our program, 75% of our youth pursue post-secondary education! If you’d like to learn more about how to get involved, please contact Emily Chung at .
