ORGANIZATION: New Pathways for Youth

Image_202307101534

New Pathways for Youth serves teens who have experienced extreme poverty and at least 3 major childhood traumas such as abuse, neglect, mental illness, substance abuse in the home, and/or family member incarceration. We provide them with personal life-skills workshops, a caring & supportive community, and they are each paired with a volunteer mentor that they can count on. With the help of our mentors, New Pathways enables youth to reach incredible outcomes and break the cycle of poverty for their families.

63% of the youth we serve are Hispanic/Latino and many of their parents or caregivers are Spanish speaking only. While our Program Coordinators facilitate communication, the families we serve are always grateful when their kids are matched with Spanish-speaking mentors!

We are actively recruiting adults to match with youth in SEPTEMBER! If you are a caring and committed adult and you're curious, please attend one of our weekly Mentor Introduction sessions on Zoom to learn more. You can see all the dates and RSVP here: https://npfy.as.me/Mentor-Intro

Mission Statement

Transforming the lives of youth by providing the support, stability, and skills they need to flourish in the community and in their families.

Description

In the communities we serve, young people experience poverty and 3 times the adversity of their peers. Beyond the instability and insecurity that makes it difficult to meet their most basic needs, these youth experience social, emotional, and cognitive obstacles that bar them from living the joyful, purposeful life that every young person deserves.

We are changing that. We are building a future where every young person can live their life with joy and purpose, confident in their ability to decide their own path.

To make it happen, we provide 1:1 mentoring with a dedicated adult and a proven program for personal growth, including tailored goal setting and connection to vital resources, all within a supportive peer group. In doing so, we're transforming the lives of youth by providing the support, stability, and skills they and their families need to flourish.

Our holistic, research-based program is proven to generate remarkable outcomes for the youth we serve - from improved mental health and personal wellness to academic success and greater high school graduation rates. We give them the tools and resources to not only achieve safe, healthy lives, but find fulfilling career paths, seize new opportunities, and enhance their relationships with their families, peers, and all those around them.

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.
