Most of us can reflect back on our lives and remember "That Person." The one who celebrated our successes and picked us up when we were down. The one who pointed us in the right direction and believed in us when we didn't believe in ourselves. There are over 180,000 youth in Maricopa County who are still waiting for "That Person." Could "That Person" be you?

For the youth in our community who face adversity, having a stable, nurturing, and caring adult in their life can lead them on a path to accomplish their goals. Mentors expand possibilities and help broaden horizons for youth. If you want to be a changemaker in a young person's life, now is the time!

New Pathways for Youth is actively recruiting men and women to be matched 1-1 with Phoenix area youth who have experienced extreme poverty and adversity. Screen and train virtually right now and match in person as early as this Spring!

To learn more about NPFY and how you can make a difference, attend one of our weekly Virtual Mentor Introduction session. You can see all dates and RSVP here: https://npfy.as.me/Mentor-Intro

Be an inspiration. Be a mentor!

Mission Statement

Transformation begins with awakening the full human potential. New Pathways for Youth guides young people as they discover renewed outlooks on life and realize unwritten possibilities for their futures. We do this through a holistic development program and 1:1 mentoring within community groups.

Description

At New Pathways for Youth, we’re awakening the full human potential to bring about individual and community transformation.

In the communities we serve, youth experience poverty and four times the adversity of their peers. Beyond material insecurities, these challenges interrupt a youth’s sense of their potential, disconnecting them from what’s true: that each of us has immeasurable, inherent value - and the future holds unlimited possibilities. Through a holistic development program and 1:1 mentoring within community groups, we guide our youth as they discover renewed outlooks on life and realize unwritten possibilities for their futures.

Our research-based program is proven to generate remarkable outcomes for the youth we serve; from greater high school graduation rates, to increased personal wellness and prevention of harmful behaviors. Nobody goes it alone. Every youth takes root in and is supported by the entire New Pathways community, discovering healthier, more conscious ways of thinking and taking transformative steps together.

When our youth experience the support and personal development that our program offers, they feel unstoppable - and that spirit extends beyond the self to impact their family, community, and the world around them.
