Pathways Receives $80,000 in grants!
Pathways has received $80,000 in grants this fall for our Project Win-Win program!
The Youth Advisory Board of State Farm awarded the youth leaders from Pathways almost $62,000, $8,000 from Best Buy Children's Foundation, and $9,500 contribution from Novartis to transform our Project Win-Win program into a social entrepreneurship. The funding will go toward building small businesses in photography/graphic arts, video production, and music and entertainment. We are very excited as this funding will give us the ability to have state of the art programs in our Creative Studio that will emulate a professional work environment. It will give us the equipment, software, and professionals to raise this program to a social entrepreneurship. The students will work to create projects in music, film, photography, and graphic arts for businesses and organizations. The funding they generate will be used to pay them and continue to support their training and the expansion of the program and business. The greatest thing about the program is it will include the ideas, passions, and talents of children of all ability levels. The children are pictured above with Jennifer Young from State Farm receiving the check! Thank you to YAB State Farm, Best Buy Children's Foundation, and Novartis!

The Mighty Mustangs
The Montville Township High School football is a group of young men who really understand the heart of football. All season they have truly included a 16 year old boy with multiple disabilities on their team. They are shining examples of what the game really means and have worked so hard to make sure that Jacob has been involved in everything. This video shows Jacob with the team in a pep rally for their first home game in front of the entire school chanting his name. Jacob got to carry the team flag leading his team onto the field, and for the first time in his life, Jacob ran a ball for 2 yards on the field during a real game. The Mustangs were awarded Pathways' "Make a Difference Award" on May 10, 2014 for the outstanding job they did in including children of all abilities!
