In December 2016, we released a final report highlighting the accomplishments of the Pathways Fund, a five-year fund with the goal of strengthening the bridge between education and workforce development in order to foster opportunity and access for low-income youth.  As part of the SIF, the Pathways Fund provided financial and strategic support to help increase the reach and impact of six innovative nonprofit organizations working toward this collective mission - College Advising Corps, College Summit, iMentor, Single Stop, Year Up, and YouthBuild USA.  The third of our six Pathways Fund organizations is iMentor.

The story of the Pathways Fund, which is sunsetting this year, is an extraordinarily important one for the New Profit community. Together with our amazing partners (see above graphic) we built Pathways and helped catalyze the new and growing college-to-career success field, achieving large-scale results for young people from under-resourced communities and creating a learning lab for a collaborative, multi-faceted approach that is crucial to social problem solving. Everything we are doing today at New Profit to break down systemic barriers to opportunity in America is informed by the lessons we learned from Pathways. Over the next few weeks, we are going to be rolling out the story of Pathways, highlighting the amazing organizations that were a part of it, and sharing lessons learned from the whole initiative.
