February 2017 Newsletter


National Mentoring Month celebrated its 15th anniversary this past month, and to celebrate, we found big ways to thank our mentors. It also gave mentors a chance to showcase their experiences, sharing why they mentor and what mentoring means to them.

January 12 marked National “I am a mentor” Day. We featured mentor testimonials along with images highlighting the bond between mentor and mentee.

Later in the month we surprised six lucky mentors at work with a visit from their mentee. You should’ve seen the looks on their faces when those mentors realized what was happening! Thank you to our friends at Alliance Residential and Luke Air Force Base for making that special moment possible.

For many of our matches at New Pathways, these relationships will last well beyond the high school or college years. It’s a truly special bond that these images and stories can only begin to reveal. To experience that bond and what it means to transform a life and a community as these mentors have done, we invite you to take that next step and get to know us!

Come see what a few hours a month can mean in the life of our youth.

Come see what mentoring is all about!
Become a mentor, transform a life.Mentor transforming a life.

9 out of 10 youth in our programs live in extreme poverty. Without positive guidance, their path to a successful and productive future will be paved with uncertainty. The presence of a caring mentor is often all it takes to help them get across the opportunity gaps that stand in their way.

We need 35 mentors for 35 incredible youth by February 28.

Employing our proven Transformative Mentoring Program, New Pathways for Youth has made it easier than ever to make a big impact on these at-risk youth and their families.

Smiling faces, transforming lives.

Now is your chance to see what a caring relationship can mean to a youth in need. Attend one of our intro sessions, Tuesdays at 6:15pm. Have an upcoming staff meeting at your business? Let us have five minutes at the top of your agenda. You’ll be glad you did and amazed at what you’ll discover!

Thank You to our PartnersNew Pathways youth learning life skills.

It’s no secret that our work is made possible by the amazing dedication of businesses and organizations to the New Pathways mission—empowering youth to fulfill their potential through mentoring and life skill development.

DEPCOM Power is one such organization, making transformations possible by opening their doors and making critical resources available to enhance our work in the community. The lives of so many youth and their families have been touched by the generosity of DEPCOM and its employees.

We encourage others to get involved in your community, building relationships that grow our potential and help close opportunity gaps in education and employment for our youth.
