Recruitment for potential mentors through our Pathways Mentoring Program initiative is done through partner churches, partner school staff and the networks of team members and existing mentors. Other community members outside of our network are informed through social media and flyer distribution at community events. Those who are not known through our networks will be considered only after careful scrutiny. Those interested must fill out an application, be interviewed by our staff, and also submit to reference and background checks.
Preference is given to Washington Heights /Inwood or Northwest Bronx residents or those who attend churches in or have extensive connection to these communities. This reflects our philosophy of "asset based" development where members of the same community support each other for the common good.
