Calling All Mentors

New Pathways for Youth is looking for mentors to share a journey of hope, kindness, and support with young people. 

Too many youth in Phoenix face adversity that keeps them from seeing the possibilities of their lives. As a mentor, you’ll work with your match to help them identify and reach their personal and educational goals. You’ll attend life-changing workshops hosted by New Pathways, and spend time building your mentee’s strengths and confidence. And in the process, you’ll nourish goodness in your own life.

Being a mentor is an important endeavor. That’s why we work so hard for your success. New Pathways mentors receive comprehensive training to prepare them, and our team of professionals are with you every step of the way.

New Pathways youth have a 95% high school graduation rate and 90% go on to secondary education. With new confidence and broadened horizons, they are prepared to embrace the future.

Please sign up as a mentor today to help a young person awaken their boundless human potential. You’ll be glad you did.

Prepared to Achieve: Supporting our Seniors 

New Pathways for Youth’s programs make a powerful difference, outpacing national standards and expectations. But our life-changing outcomes don’t happen by accident; they’re the result of careful planning, engaged mentors, and youth that have learned to dream big.

In consultation with their case management team, high school seniors at New Pathways write a step-by-step plan for enrolling in a post-secondary education option. This includes a university, community college, or vocational or trade school.  No matter what the youth’s plan is, completing these steps gives access, options, and possibilities to different paths after high school. Most importantly, it enables our youth to reach the intended result of living their fullest life.

There’s no “easy” in breaking down false assumptions and expectations and then replacing them with bold, empowered aspirations. It is sustained, meticulous work, and often difficult. You can honor the hard work of our youth and help change lives by making a tax-deductible contribution to New Pathways for Youth today. There is so much more work to be done, and with your investment, many more youth can awaken their unlimited possibilities.
