ORGANIZATION: New Pathways for Youth

Image_202006171538

When you were young, did you have an adult outside your family looking out for you? Do you wish you did? The kids at New Pathways for Youth live below the poverty line and have faced extreme adversity that their classmates have not. These young people have signed up because they and their caregivers agree that an outside mentor will help them to discover opportunities in life, to succeed, and reach their goals.

We are matching youth and adults in SEPTEMBER, and we're in need of some caring, stable and nurturing adults join us as mentors! The program is very well designed and you'll feel confident and supported even if you don't have any specific experience with youth or cultures of poverty.

If you’re curious and might like to become a mentor in SEPTEMBER, please attend a Mentor Introduction session no later than August 19th. They are held multiple times a week on Zoom. You can see all the dates and RSVP here: https://npfy.as.me/Mentor-Intro

We look forward to doing good things with you!

About New Pathways for Youth

Location:

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 personal 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.
