pathways for youth
Pathways for Youth is a comprehensive and caring after-school program for children in grades 3 through 12. The program is the cornerstone of the Presbyterian Community Center’s commitment to keep children in school through graduation.
Individual tutoring by community volunteers, mentoring, on-site counseling, life-skills training, field trips, cultural and academic enrichment opportunities, and community service activities help children attain the social and academic competency necessary to succeed in school and in life. Pathways activities are structured to provide students with Developmental Assets, the Search Institute's 40 critical factors for healthy growth and development. In addition to the Presbyterian Community Center personnel, Pathways is also staffed with professional counselors from Family Service of Roanoke Valley and trained community volunteers
