Mentor & Mentee Testimonials 

"I had no idea that I would benefit so much by having a Pathways Mentor in my life. I was struggling to get myself back on my feet after the end of a bad marriage. I was stuck, lost, and isolated when I put my hand out to Pathways, and they connected me with my amazing mentor. And it was transformational for me and my life moving forward"

- Judy (Mentee - not her real name)

"Assisting others to develop life skills is one of the greatest Mitzvot. Knowing I am supporting a mentee through trauma makes me feel stronger. I can understand another person’s real life and help them to feel they are not alone"

- Mara (Mentor)
