Mission

Offering Maryland’s disconnected youth, ages 16-24, a pathway to success.

New Pathways educates and empowers disconnected young adults to overcome the obstacles placed in their path that prevent them from reaching their full potential. Youth who – for one reason or another – lack the essential education, life skills, job training, family support, and social networks necessary to make their way in the world. Things you and I take for granted. Without the essential skills and support, these young adults run the risk of falling behind, or worse, losing their way altogether. That’s something we want to prevent.

At New Pathways, we believe that – given the chance – young people are the key to thriving economies and a vibrant future for us all. And we’ll do everything we can to help them get there.
