Pathways Reaches $30,000 Goal for Haiti
Today Pathways took our DJ program to the bank to learn how to make a deposit. This was not just any deposit. This deposit capped off a very long 7 months of fundraising that most people would have termed impossible! We raised $30,000 to build a school in an impoverished village in Haiti. We will be leaving on June 26th and coming back on July 4th. The photo is the crew that went to celebrate the final deposit at Lakeland Bank in Boonton, NJ. We were shy $20 from our goal and an employee at Lakeland donated the $20 that got us over the finish line! Thank you to all who made this dream a reality! You have made a difference for the children in Haiti!

Pathways' Rock Band Performs at Tinton Falls Middle School During an "Include ME!" Assembly
Pathways was invited by Tinton Falls Middle School to share our "Include ME!" assembly with their students and staff. The assembly focuses on helping children to realize the empowerment that comes from diversity. It highlights what children with disabilities "can do" and how changing perception of how we view the word "disability" can open up a world of opportunity for everyone. The Pathways Rock Band came to the assembly to perform. The rock band is made up of children of all abilities and is a true example of the empowerment that comes from diversity. The video below is a part of the rock band performing :the Fight Song." The rock band will be performing at the Pathways' 13th Anniversary Celebration on November 13, 2015. Come join us for a great Beefsteak dinner and a night of inspiration at the Brownstone in Paterson, NJ!

The students in this program are learning to tell a story and communitcate the beauty they see in astounding photographs. They use DSLR professional cameras along with Photoshop and Lightroom to edit them. They have reached a professional status and are selling their photographs in galleries!
