Be the person you wish you had at that age by becoming a youth mentor.

New Pathways for Youth works with Phoenix-area high school-aged kids who have experienced high levels of adversity. Youth are matched with a volunteer mentor, who serves as a caring and stable adult in their life and supports them in completing our research-based program for setting and meeting personal goals.

Steps to Becoming a Mentor

Mentor Intro

Attend one of our info sessions, Mentor Introduction, to learn about the program and your commitment to becoming a youth mentor.

Sign Up

After you’ve attended our info session to become a youth mentor and determined mentoring is right for you right now, you’ll interview with a member of our team so we can get to know you better.

Volunteer Mentor Training Courses

You will complete four training courses to ensure you are prepared to serve as a volunteer mentor for Phoenix youth.


Once your youth volunteer mentorship training is complete, you’ll attend a weekend retreat where you’ll be matched with a Phoenix-area youth joining our program.
