Pathways: How to Help

Pathways to Education is a collaborative program which depends on schools, community organizations, businesses and hundreds of diverse volunteers who share their talent and expertise with us.

There are many ways you can help:


As Pathways to Education grows, so does our need for volunteers. We continually recruit volunteers throughout the year to support the delivery of our tutoring and mentoring programs. We offer a variety of opportunities, training sessions and ongoing support during your volunteer experience with us.

Volunteers play an essential role in the Pathways to Education tutoring and mentoring programs. The program’s phenomenal success in lowering high school drop-out rates is a direct result of the hard work of our dedicated and skilled volunteers.

Types of Volunteer Opportunities in the Pathways Program


Pathways tutors commit to a minimum of one evening per week to tutor students in small groups or one-on-one. We need tutors to help students who have a range of academic abilities with high school subjects. Tutors specialize in at least one subject (math, sciences, English, French, social sciences, or literacy).

Group Mentors

Pathways mentors provide social support by leading groups of youth in a range of activities, including basketball, international cooking, martial arts, drama and more.
