PATHWAYS! March 2023

Thank You for Another Memorable Breakfast

We held our Stories of Transformation breakfast earlier this month, and it was a tremendous success! We raised a whopping $502,000 to continue transforming the lives of youth in our community.

We want to give a huge thank you to all who attended and participated in our breakfast, as well as those who donated from home. We wouldn’t be able to do this work without your incredible support.

If you missed out on the magic, watch this video to hear from some of our amazing speakers. And if you’d still like to support NPFY’s mission to match more youth with the support, stability, and skills they need to flourish, make a donation today.

Helping More Scholars Find Their Path

We are thrilled to announce that we are launching the New Pathways for Youth Scholarship Fund this spring. Thanks to the generosity of the Ibis Foundation, we are able to offer this new scholarship opportunity for students who qualify based on both need and academic promise.

At New Pathways, we are committed to helping our young adults reach their full potential, so they can decide their path with confidence. Being able to pay for education is a critical part of that, and these scholarships will allow us to help even more graduates on their journey to a bright future.

Welcoming Our New Co-Facilitators

We are thrilled to introduce you to the latest cofacilitators who have joined us at New Pathways. These nine talented individuals have been immersing themselves in our integral curriculum and working hard on their personal development since the beginning of their journey with us. Their unwavering commitment to this vital work is a testament to their passion for serving our community. You can catch them in action cofacilitating at an upcoming match workshop or retreat.

From top right to bottom right, our new facilitators include:

Celebrate March Madness, NPFY-Style

This month, we’re celebrating March Madness with a basketball-themed party for our matches. Our youth and mentors will choose their favorite NPFY distinction in a final four bracket, play horse and other basketball-themed games. Then, we wrap up with eating pizza in the beautiful March weather and sending all of our youth home with a delicious game day snack basket!
