Pathways to Success provides the following services and programs:

  • Talking Círculos

    • Trained facilitators meet with at risk youth weekly in a group setting to build a positive value system and address issues regarding risky behaviors. This level of intervention and support is modeled after an evidence-based and nationally recognized youth program, written by Jerry Tello, with curriculum based on the philosophy that youth need other men and women, their family, and community to care for, assist, heal, guide, and successfully prepare them for adulthood.
      • Our P2S program currently runs two groups under this structure and philosophy:

    Xochikalli: Leadership for Young Women

    Ollin: Leadership for Young Men

  • On-site, school-based support: Student advocates mentor youth who are at risk of disengaging with the education system and address attendance barriers as a pathway to graduation and future success.
