New Pathways for Youth



New Pathways for Youth

Their Mission

New Pathways for Youth empowers youth to fulfill their potential through mentoring and life-skill development.  We are driven by these fundamental beliefs:

  • Youth do as we do . . . 

therefore, we are aware of our words, actions and body language as role models.

  • There are no bad kids (only bad choices). . . 

therefore, we see the positive traits our youth possess.

  • Youth take actions consistent with the future they see for themselves . . . 

therefore, we provide experiences that expand their possibilities. 

  • Caring adults make a difference in the lives of youth . . . 

therefore, we support mentors to create strong and solid relationships.

  • All youth can make a positive impact on their community . . . 

therefore, we provide opportunities for them to see the power of their actions.

  • Our kids teach us more than we teach them . . . 

therefore, we see, encourage and embrace the positive impact they make on their communities and us.



Their Story

Since 1989, New Pathways for Youth has developed and acquired mentoring programs that are unique to the Valley and have measurable success transforming the lives of at-risk youth, who often describe where they see themselves in the future as “dead or in jail.”  All youth self-select into the program.  With a supportive staff, trained mentors, and effective curriculum, we are able to show youth a new pathway.
