Through New Pathways for Youth, young people in our community can grow, learn and succeed with the guidance of a volunteer mentor who has chosen to make a positive impact on a young person’s life.

New Pathways for Youth’s mission is to empower youth to fulfill their potential through mentoring and life skill development. Our organization is a model for and thought-leader surrounding transformative mentoring relationships.

New Pathways for Youth connects youth ages 12 to 21 with caring and dedicated adult mentors to help these youth reach their greatest possible potential. We ground our mentoring practices in evidence-based curriculum that focuses on social and emotional learning. The curriculum involves intentional programs through which youth, with the support of their mentors, acquire and effectively apply knowledge, attitudes, and skills.

New Pathways for Youth has transformed the lives of nearly 6,500 youth through the development of core social, emotional, and academic skills with the help of committed volunteers and community support.

"Because of this program, I now have a sense of purpose in my life. I have a community of support and have direction in school and in life."
