To our new donors and our continued supporters, thank you for your generosity. You give our students the ultimate gift – the gift of an education.

Every dollar you give to Pathways Milwaukee makes a difference in one of our students’ lives.

Our students’ success relies greatly on community and donor support to ensure that our students have access to academic support, technology, and invaluable learning experiences outside of the classroom.

Your support allows our students – the opportunity to DREAM about educational achievements, DISCOVER their full potential, and eventually DECIDE which college to attend after high school.

As a non-profit organization, funding from our corporate and community partners as well as supporters like you is crucial to our continuation in making a difference in the lives of Milwaukee Youth.  As we embark on another school year, we need your support!

Help us prepare our students for success when they return to Pathways this Fall.

Pathways Milwaukee supports lower-income, first-generation college prospects on the path to college and career success. At Pathways, we believe that college is an option for everyone, and through our program we make this belief a reality.

Beginning with students in 6th grade, our program focuses on building college-readiness skills through a holistic year-round program consisting of growing academic strengths, social skills, and college preparation, all within a faith-based and family-focused framework. With this program, we address the education crisis that is preventing many students from succeeding in college, career, and life.
Pathways Milwaukee strives to nurture and develop strong, future leaders in our Milwaukee youth.
