New Pathways for Youth is a necessity in ensuring our youth see a new future for themselves.
As those in attendance heard at the Annual Breakfast, the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) can be severe, including dropping out of high school, higher unemployment and poverty rates, and an up to a 20 year decrease in life expectancy. The primary intervention in mitigating the impact of these adversities is a stable relationship with a caring adult. Your investment allows our youth to create a new path for their future – transforming not only one life but impacting future generations.
You Did It! By raising over $300,000 today, you unlocked a $50,000 match challenge! Because of your generosity, youth experiencing four or more Adverse Childhood Experiences will be matched with a mentor and receive case management and life skill development workshops over this next year, creating a necessary intervention to empower them to fulfill their potential.
