In addition to volunteer mentors, New Pathways for Youth welcomes volunteers to help create a better future for our youth. New Pathways for Youth invites volunteers to serve organizational needs in a variety of ways, including committee service, group projects, and individual volunteerism.
The first step to becoming an individual volunteer is to attend an introduction to volunteer needs. This will give you a high-level overview of New Pathways and our current positions. The application and next steps will be reviewed. Please email email@example.com to enroll in an introduction session.
We ask for a minimum 3-month commitment from our individual volunteers. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age. Please see below for our current volunteer openings.
We love groups! Group volunteers often assist New Pathways in a variety capacities including our Afterschool Program, as well as maintenance, facility, and organizational projects.

Use your office skills for a good cause! As administrative needs arise, volunteers could input data and upload documents onto our database, prepare and address letters/cards/envelopes for mailing projects, compile program materials, and shred documents.
