ORGANIZATION: New Pathways for Youth


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 adults to be matched 1-1 with Phoenix area youth who have experienced extreme poverty and adversity. Screen and train virtually now and match in person in SEPTEMBER!

To learn more about NPFY and how you can make a difference, attend one of our weekly Virtual Mentor Introduction session before August 16 th to match in September! You can see all dates and RSVP here:

About New Pathways for Youth

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.


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.
