PATHWAYS! September 2022

Save the Date for Our Fall Event 

Our fall Transformations Society event is on the horizon! This year’s theme is “Our Roots Run Deep” – an ode to our deep love for our Phoenix community and the strong bonds we’ve formed here. Over the years, our soil has been nurtured by our incredible Transformations Society members and more who are passionate about bringing hope to young people facing adversity. This fall, we’re excited to celebrate all who have helped build this strong foundation, as well as to see where our branches will continue to grow.

Come join us on Thursday, October 27th, at 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Events on Jackson as we celebrate our community and the youth we serve. We’ll look back on all that our friends have helped us accomplish recently, as well as give an exciting preview of what’s to come!

Make sure to save the date on your calendar and RSVP here to join us!

Building Upward

This summer, DPR Construction conducted a summer workforce development program with three

New Pathways youth. This program was part of our wider initiative to provide more career development opportunities for our youth that will equip them with the tools they need to succeed in the workforce.

Each of the participants were matched with a DPR employee to guide them through the program, where they learned about all of the different careers available within construction, built their resumes, and learned valuable presentation skills.

Congrats to our talented youth for completing this fantastic program, and thank you to DPR Construction for helping our youth to develop their skills and experience – all of which will help them to build their futures with purpose. We can’t wait to see what comes next!

Come Onboard!

We’re thrilled to announce that after two years of development, we’ve overhauled our mentor onboarding process. Our new system includes a mix of video, infographics and reading to teach our mentors all about our curriculum in a way that is both deeper and more engaging. Becoming a mentor at NPFY has never been easier!

Want to see what the hype is about? Attend a Mentor Intro session and become a mentor! Our Mentor Intro sessions are hosted on Zoom every Tuesday and Friday. Or, refer someone you know who would make a great mentor by sharing the link.
