Pathways for Exceptional Children
Purchase Your Cards for the Holiday!
Pathways' photography and graphic arts studio has made some great holiday cards! The scenes were designed, photos taken, and pictures edited by the children! The graphics were also drawn by children using Adobe Illustrator. The children worked hard and came up with some very professional and beautiful cards for Christmas and Hanukkah for you to send to family and friends. The cards are stunning examples of the gifts found in every child! If you would like to view and purchase the cards click below.
Pathways Receives $70,000 in grants!
Pathways has received $70,000 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 and $8,000 from Best Buy Children's Foundation 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 and Best Buy Children's Foundation!

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. Friday night on October 4, 2013, 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. Thank you to the Mustangs and to Coach Don! You made a boy that loves to play football feel like he won the Super Bowl!

Pathways' Rock Band Plays on Stage with the Jonas Brothers at the PNC
Pathways' Rock Band was invited by Kevin Jonas to play on the PNC stage with them during the Jonas Brothers' sound check party. Pathways practiced to sing the Jonas Brother's song "Burning Up" and joined them on June 25, 2013 prior to their concert at the PNC. The sound check was fantastic and the Pathways' Rock Band loved every minute of it! Thank you to the Jonas Brothers and all their crew for making some dreams a reality for the kids! You made a lasting difference that will never be forgotten! View a video of their performance below and check out our facebook to the right for more photos!
