At Pathways to Education, we know from our work with communities across the country that systemic racism is pervasive and significantly impacts a young person’s access to opportunities and chances of future success. The consequences affect entire families and communities for generations.

Anti-Black racism and racism of any kind cannot be tolerated. Our staff, alumni, volunteers, and partners will continue to work to reduce the impacts of racism in our communities by helping students overcome barriers to education and empowering them to succeed.

Further, we recognize we have a responsibility to always strive to do better. We believe in the importance of continuous learning and are committed to listening to both learn—and importantly unlearn—how we can best support the students and communities we serve.
