What We Do: Our Approach

Though there are thousands of disconnected youth in the Baltimore region alone and over 5.6 million nationally, we know the worst thing to do is treat any one of them as a mere statistic. Pushing these young adults through the system and towards some arbitrary finish line without the skills they need to make it on their own does both them and society at large a great disservice. At New Pathways, we not only want to help guide these young people on a clear path to adulthood…we want to set them up for success. That’s why we take a holistic approach and provide individualized service in all we do. And, at New Pathways we believe young people learn best by doing, so all our programs include direct experiences of putting newly learned skills to use in realistic situations whenever possible.

Our classes are small, our instructors and counselors are highly qualified, and our dedication is unwavering. We create personalized plans for each youth in our program based on their individual needs and goals. Our goal is to educate and empower these young people to become self-sufficient, productive, and responsible adults. No matter what the challenges. No matter what obstacles they have to overcome. That’s the New Pathways way. And that’s what makes us a leader in our field.
