Our program relies on volunteers who have an interest in mentoring women facing the challenges of living in poverty. We work together to help our program participants to take steps on a new path to self-sufficiency, journeying along side with an open ear and experienced guidance.

Shortly after orientation and training, our Mentors are matched with a program Participant and begin meeting with them once a week (often over zoom, sometimes in person). Mentors and Participants initially collaborate on goal-setting exercises and then over the next twelve months work together towards achieving those goals.

Our Mentors:

  • are able to coach, and to be coached
  • have a strong desire to help individuals achieve their potential
  • must be 18+
We offer access to free meeting space at our offices in Attleboro, MA, as well as use of work stations for online tutorials and training, employment-related activities, such as resume writing and job search, and finding other goals-related resources. We also host several free workshops each quarter that Mentors and Participants are eligible to attend, individually or together. Most of our mentoring is taking place over zoom due to the pandemic, but there are opportunities for in person meetings.

Just one hour a week can make a lifetime of difference. If you are interested in helping, please contact us at 774.331.8005 to speak with Gail Mocklin, or drop her a note at gmocklin@paveyourpath.org. Volunteers MUST BE 18 or older. We are mentoring ADULT Women.


Thank you for considering sharing your time and talents with individuals in need!
