Volunteer at Pathways
Pathways relies on volunteers to have a maximum impact on the lives of our students. We are looking for individuals to volunteer in the classroom, working with our students, as well as individuals to volunteer in various capacities outside the classroom. We would love to meet with you to learn more about your interests.
I enjoyed volunteering at Pathways Summer Camp because I had the opportunity to meet incredible students. I originally volunteered because I wanted to make a difference in their lives, but after camp I realized how much of an impact each student had on mine. The Pathways students are all so warm hearted, and I enjoyed my time with each of them. I cannot wait to return!”

Special Event Volunteers
Pathways is involved in various special events throughout the year. If you would like to be contacted to help at a special event, please let us know.
Pathways relies on community support to operate. We are always looking for individuals who are passionate about our program and are interested in helping Pathways raise funds.
Pathways loves to accommodate groups that want to make a difference in the lives of our students. Groups often work with our students or on other special projects. Please contact Amy Shackelford (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least two weeks in advance of your requested volunteering date so we can start making accommodations for your group. Groups of 10 or more may consider scheduling a Pathways work night to help with prep work for our students’ products. We can provide refreshments and snacks; you provide the people. A work night is a fun way to fellowship with your friends, family or co-workers while making a difference in the lives of our students.
