Open the door for more Scholars in under-resourced communities

Talent is equally distributed. Opportunity is not!

But your gift makes the difference.

FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS, Pathways to College has been expanding the college pipeline through our proven after-school program for students of color in under-resourced neighborhoods. We uniquely target overlooked students with potential, to help them develop the skills and habits of mind that research indicates are critical to academic and career success.

While just 30% of students enter Pathways identified as "high achieving," fully 100% of our graduates earn college acceptance, and 90% enter college. Pathways works!


  • Your gift of $1,000 allows us to offer 4 Scholars an engaging College and Cultural Field Trip experience.
  • Your gift of $500 gives a teacher the resources to provide 1 year of enriching activities that build community among Scholars to ensure those crucial relationships that underpin deep, lasting learning.
  • Your gift of $250 allows us to offer ongoing professional learning to build teacher capacity for SEL leadership that not only impacts our Scholars, but also supports all the young people reached by that teacher. Pathways has infused social and emotional learning (SEL) into our curriculum from our very beginnings.
  • Your gift of $100 gives Scholars the opportunity to earn annual awards that motivate their participation and hard work throughout the school year.
  • Your gift of $50 welcomes a new Scholar to our family of teachers and Scholars, who are dedicated to individual growth and development for life-long success.
