Pathways Foundation Logo

Pathways Foundation's purpose is to promote and assist with the prevention of suicide, self harm, substance abuse, particularly depression and under-achievement, through the provision of community based rites of passage programmes for boys and girls, designed to bolster their self esteem and improve life outcomes for them and regardless of their financial situation.

The Pathways Foundation has been delivering innovative and life changing programmes into communities for over two decades, for children between 6 -15 years. Research shows that the major impact on a child’s self esteem is the relationship they have with their parents and community. Additionally, a high percentage of young children in Australia are experiencing early sexualisation, negative body image and partaking in self harm through drugs and alcohol.
