It’s human nature to want to belong, to want to be a part of something…bigger. New Pathways for Youth prides itself on responding to this basic desire.

New Pathways for Youth is a community of inspiring and inspired individuals. Mentors complete a concentrated mentor training, imparting to them the skills to provide youth with acceptance, belonging, and the opportunity to envision and create a better future.

These prevention and intervention methods create a culture of healing and resiliency where youth have the opportunity to achieve their greatest potential. By building positive relationships through mentoring, New Pathways for Youth designs supportive environments that teach new possibilities and the essential skills to achieve life goals.
