At New Pathways for Youth, we are set apart by our research-based, holistic approach and the change it enables our youth to create in their lives and communities. Our program isn’t limited to transforming the world around us, but is equally focused on transforming the heart, mind, and soul.
Through our workshops, retreats, and case management we provide social-emotional, personal development, and life skills curriculum. And when reconnected to the truth of unlimited possibilities, our youth are unstoppable, growing into their full human potential.
Individually-Tailored Action Plans
All of our youth are working towards their own college, career, and personal development goals. With the support of their mentors and New Pathways staff, they create and follow unique action plans that will help them achieve their goals in the short and long term. Day by day, week by week, our youth are creating pathways that lead to the futures they dream of.
Connections to Critical Resources
New Pathways connects our youth with resources for personal well-being, ongoing development, and daily necessities that support the entire family. This ranges from housing assistance to food security to emergency relief, providing essential stability.
One-on-One Support from an Adult Mentor
Every youth is paired with an adult mentor to provide support during their journey. This mentoring happens in a connected community of other mentors and youth, helping to build stable, nurturing, and life-changing relationships of mutual growth.
The New Pathways for Youth program is research-based and proven to generate remarkable outcomes for the youth we serve.
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.

We are aiming to double our impact over the next five years to serve 1000 youth annually. That means we have some ambitious, transformative goals:
- Growing into Phoenix’s most vulnerable neighborhoods to reach the youth that can most benefit from our program, while expanding the support we provide to youths’ families.
- Building long-term sustainability by diversifying revenue streams and engaging champions through board and leadership council memberships.
- Bolstering our programming through investment in further training and development for our staff, and mentors, allowing us to prepare more youth to take on their futures with readiness and resilience.
