At Pathways Academy, we use the term “Advocate” to refer to any adult involved in the scholastics and well-being of our scholar. An advocate can be parents, relatives, guardians, friends, community members and beyond. Advocates ensuring scholars have essential tools for healthy living and learning is a pivotal component to the success of our program. While this is a pillar, we do understand this responsibility can be daunting. For that reason, Pathways Academy believe a healthy and supported Advocate is equally as vital. Because the needs and opinions of our Advocates matter, a focus group is conducted to ensure we are on the right path in safeguarding needs and offering support where needed. We ask our Pathways Academy advocates to pledge:
- To defend the rights to my scholars’ right to learn, be happy and healthy, and have a safe childhood;
- To support their scholars’ dreams and hopes for a better future and accompany them in their journey; and,
- To promote experiences that will positively impact their career choices.
