Pathways To Education

At Pathways to Education we believe that youth in our communities have within them tremendous strength, resilience, and potential. Pathways programming unlocks this potential through a community-based program proven to lower high school drop out rates.

For the 2017/18 school year, Pathways to Education programming is being offered to youth entering grade 9 who reside in the Waterloo Village and South End neighborhoods of Saint John. The program supports youth and their families through a variety of free supports:

  • Academic Support: through a tutoring program
  • Social Support: through a mentoring program
  • Financial Support: through bi-weekly incentives and a scholarship
  • Advocacy Support: though their own Youth Advisor

Pathways to Education is a national organization that works in partnership with the Teen Resource Centre (TRC), a local leader in helping youth reach their full potential.

The Pathways model has been proven to increase high school graduation within their target communities by 70%. Of these graduates, 73% have gone on to pursue post-secondary education and training.
