The vision of New American Pathways is to promote safety and stability, self-sufficiency, success, and service for individual refugees and refugee families in Georgia. It offers distinct program areas that focus on jobs, education, cultural integration, individual and female empowerment, building strong families and civic engagement. All of these programs are enhanced through the service of a 16-member AmeriCorps team and hundreds of volunteers.
