New Pathways for Youth

In the communities we serve, youth experience poverty and three 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.

At New Pathways for Youth, 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 need to flourish in the community and in their families.

Each of our youth receives tailored action-planning and support according to their needs and personal goals, as well as connections to critical resources for personal well-being, and daily necessities that support the youth’s entire family, ranging from housing assistance to food security to emergency relief. All of this is complemented by 1:1 support from an adult mentor within a group of peers in order to build stable, nurturing, life-changing relationships.

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.

With the support of the entire New Pathways community, youth are able to transform their lives and confidently find their own path to fulfillment.
