PATH 4 LIFE | Mentor Program
Empowering Pathfinders to reach their full potential
"The PATH 4 LIFE program has been an opportunity to have a connection to a person who has walked a similar path to me.
It's incredibly comforting to have the support, guidance and listening ear of a person who truly understands me but has no agenda.
I am surprised by how much my mentor relationship has helped me grow and develop. This program is helping me to reconnect to Judaism in ways I wasn't sure were possible"
- Julia (Pathfinder & Mentee)
The PATH 4 LIFE | Mentor Program offers you (Pathfinders) free access to friendly, supportive, skilled and fully-trained Mentors who will provide life-changing support (strictly confidential).
PATH 4 LIFE offers three types of Mentors for Pathfinders:
Buddy Mentors: Connect with someone with shared lived experience – someone who will listen, act as a sounding board and provide guidance if you are questioning and/or moving away from your Orthodox lifestyle.
Professional Mentors: If specific professional guidance is what you need, we have Mentors to provide Math/English tutoring, careers counselling, job seeking support, CV writing guidance and higher education application advice. Just let us know what you need!
Life Skills Mentors: You may wish to simply hang with someone who can take you to music gigs, explore the town, have coffee and chat about life.
If you have any questions about the program, please contact:
