MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR & CEO This past year, Pathways to Education celebrated the achievements of 5,747 students, including 863 graduates. Thanks to the generous support of Pathways champions, we increased programming enrolment across the country and launched two new Program locations: one in Edmonton, Alberta, and another in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. We also celebrated 10 years of programming in Quebec, which coincided with the first graduating cohorts from two Program locations in the province: Shawinigan and Sherbrooke. This fiscal year, we expanded our efforts to reach more students across Canada, while maintaining the excellence of our award-winning program. An investment in young people and their education is an investment in Canada’s future. In our 17th year of programming, we truly appreciate our private and public funders who continue to invest in our social impact across the country. Graduation rates have improved in the communities we serve, and more than 5,800 Pathways alumni are pursuing their post-secondary journeys today. Students and alumni of the Pathways Program are a key part of the social fabric of our communities, and we celebrate their successes. Our collaborative approach is creating positive change, and impresses on all that together, we can break the cycle of poverty through education. As the Pathways Program expands across Canada, we are grateful to welcome new leaders, innovators, and educators who support our mission. This includes volunteers, staff, funders, and Program Partners who share their expertise to support our national and local fundraising efforts.

GREETINGS FROM THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA Their commitment is essential, as is our trusted board of directors whose leadership guides our strategic direction. Each and every one of these stakeholders play a crucial role in supporting Pathways youth. In today’s fast-moving world, we recognize the need to remain adaptable and relevant. It is imperative that Pathways students are provided with the supports they need to complete high school and pursue higher education and meaningful employment. Youth engagement is critical at every stage of the decision-making process. This includes integrating youth insight into program evaluation, involving youth ambassadors in national campaign initiatives, and encouraging peer support throughout programming. Across the country, Pathways youth are making their voices heard.

On behalf of the Government of Canada, I congratulate Pathways to Education on their important achievement of opening new Program locations in Edmonton and Saskatoon. By expanding the Pathways Program to these cities and working with community partners, more young Canadians, including Indigenous youth, are on track to graduate from high school. Pathways’ proven record of helping youth reach their full potential is an important step in helping families break cycles of poverty. I am pleased that our government continues to strengthen its relationship with Pathways to Education so that more vulnerable young Canadians get a real and fair shot at success. The Honourable Patty Hajdu Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour

Thank you for believing in Pathways to Education. Please continue to champion the incredible youth across Canada who overcome adversity and graduate from high school with determination. Donate time, give financial support, increase awareness about Pathways, and help us build a Graduation Nation. Sincerely,

Samuel L. Duboc Chair, Board of Directors Pathways to Education Canada

She Heroes

Future Forward

In response to the high number of young women dropping out of high school within the community, Pathways Pointe-Saint-Charles developed a pilot project called She Heroes. Through this project, Pathways Pointe-Saint-Charles explored existing opportunities for young women in the neighbourhood, developed new mentoring activities, and provided tools and training to their staff and volunteers.

In March 2018, the Future Forward youth career event took place in Montreal. This event brought together more than 60 youth from Pathways Program locations in Quebec and Ontario for a day of discovery and networking. More than 25 mentors from different professions shared their passion for their work, provided career advice, and encouraged young participants to persevere in their future projects.

The goals of She Heroes were to connect young women with female role models, offer activities that help to develop self-conďŹ dence, and provide education and resources to counter gender stereotypes. Staff and volunteers learned how to integrate gender-sensitive practices into everyday programming and long-term planning. The young women who participated reported feeling more selfassured, having a better understanding of their experiences, and an increased interest in attending school.

A variety of activities, including conferences, speed mentoring, lab career workshops, and a networking space, gave students the opportunity to discover different academic and professional paths, and highlighted both modern and traditional careers. Participants also enjoyed music, entertainment, and a career-themed photo booth. The event was a huge success, and a positive experience for everyone involved.

Several She Heroes participants had the opportunity to hear former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, speak at the Palais des congrès in Montreal in February 2018. In her speech, Mrs. Obama emphasized the importance of education, motivated the young women to be proud of their skills, and encouraged them to pursue opportunities that come their way.

Family Engagement Nights In 2017, Pathways Vancouver observed that students attend programming more regularly when their parents or caregivers are actively involved with the Pathways Program. As a result, Pathways Vancouver created Family Engagement Nights to increase communication and engagement with Pathways students’ families. This monthly event brought together families, caregivers, staff, and volunteers to learn about current updates in the school system and ongoing resources at Pathways Vancouver. The events also fostered new community relationships by enabling families to meet with one another and develop a support system. Pathways Vancouver looks forward to welcoming many more families to these engagement nights over the next year.

Indigenous Programming Evaluation

Growing Graduates Through a partnership with the Saint John Learning Exchange, an organization with experience in social entrepreneurship, Pathways Saint John students were invited to participate in a business plan project called Growing Graduates. Six students expressed interest in joining the project, and were tasked with developing and presenting business plans to sell houseplants in their neighbourhood. The students quickly became invested in developing their unique plans, and even created personalized names and biographies for each plant. In a short time, the participants learned entrepreneurial skills and how to apply critical thinking in business situations. Round one was a huge success, and all participating students unanimously agreed to continue with the program. Growing Graduates is still running, and more than half of the students enrolled in Pathways Saint John are currently participating. As an added bonus, more community members learned about the Pathways Program in Saint John through the students’ outreach.

Over the course of the 2016-2017 school year, Pathways Winnipeg conducted a youth-led evaluation of their programming to determine how it can better support the needs of Indigenous students in the community. The evaluation was rooted in the philosophy of the Circle of Courage, a model that incorporates Indigenous child development philosophies, the experiences of established leaders in education and youth work, and Western psychology. A key element of the evaluation included guided discussions to listen to the experiences of students and their parents. A total of 26 sharing circles were conducted, which were attended by 13 parents and 128 students spanning Grades 8 through 12. One of the most signiďŹ cant results was a greater understanding of how important community is to the Pathways Program, and how community support allows youth to focus on achieving their academic goals. This youth-led evaluation helped staff to place a greater focus on relationship-based engagement with students. As a result, Pathways Winnipeg implemented a Peer Helper program, which hires up to 24 senior students to support programming, serve as role models for younger students, partake in leadership development, and play an active role in program design.

20 Pathways Program Locations In partnership with the Canadian Native Friendship Centre in Edmonton and the Saskatoon Tribal Council, Pathways to Education launched two new locations in fall 2017. This expansion marks our 19th and 20th Program locations, and represents our exponential growth since 2001. Over the past 17 years, the Pathways Program has increased its national presence from supporting a single community to supporting 20 communities in eight provinces. With more than 11,000 Pathways youth, we are building a Graduation Nation. This expansion is made possible thanks in part to Pathways Program Partners. Their outstanding contributions and innovative approaches continue to support youth in their communities to graduate from high school.

The Morrisons were early supporters of Pathways to Education, investing in the first Program location in Regent Park, Toronto, in 2004. Over the years, as Pathways to Education expanded across the country, Katherine and Russell remained closely connected to its mission. Katherine is proud of the young people she’s had the pleasure of meeting and keeps their stories close. “Many years ago there was an art contest for Pathways students and two winners were chosen. It was fantastic. One piece is of a person standing on top of the world, and the other is of a box of apple juice in a field of dandelions. Totally different but both so remarkable that I have them framed at home.”

Katherine and Russell Morrison formed their family foundation in 1978 to support Canadian educational service organizations and institutions. As their foundation grew over the years, so did their careers and their family. During his career, Russell was recognized as a leading professional investor in Canada and Katherine was highly regarded as an educator, scholar, and author. In their family life, they were proud parents to their daughters, Donna and Leslie, and their son, Robert.

Clearwater Seafoods Ltd. Stephen Dent & Janet Maclaren

To Katherine, these mementos represent the uniqueness of each Pathways student and their inherent potential to do great things. Growing up, Robert and his family always agreed upon the importance of education. When Robert accepted the responsibility of managing his family’s foundation, he wanted to continue his parents’ legacy of seeking out organizations that create demonstrated impact. “Pathways stays with the youth. They’re very involved year-round and all throughout high school. Even when the students graduate, Pathways continues to provide additional guidance and encouragement. This makes Pathways stand out among charitable organizations.” Pathways to Education is grateful to these two generations of the Morrison family for their generosity and ongoing commitment. Thank you for believing in the power of education.

In 2016, at the age of 92, Russell J. Morrison passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loved ones. He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Katherine, and their children, Donna, Leslie, and Robert. Today, Robert manages the Morrison Foundation.

MESSAGE FROM THE TREASURER AND VICE-PRESIDENT, FINANCE Pathways to Education achieved a second consecutive year of financial growth, thanks to the generous support of our government funders and donors across the nation. Their combined investment of more than $31 million demonstrates confidence in the power of Pathways and the essential support it provides to youth living in low-income communities. As Pathways grows, we remain committed to providing our stakeholders with transparent, evidence-driven results.

on finding innovative and cost-effective ways to reach more students. Our investment of $1.2 million this year will strengthen and improve our growth strategy. At the same time, we realize that sufficient financial reserves are necessary to ensure program stability and expansion. With prudent financial management, we were able to add $4.4 million to these reserves, which are dedicated to supporting the long-term sustainability of Pathways Program locations, scholarships, and our mission.

STATEMENT OF REVENUES AND EXPENSES

At the national level, Pathways to Education Canada spent more than 85 per cent of funds on our core mission, including grants to Pathways Program Partners who deliver programming to students in local communities. These grants, which provide academic, financial, social, and one-on-one supports to Pathways students, increased by 10 per cent from the previous year to $20.5 million. We also provided $1.8 million in scholarships and support to Pathways alumni who are pursuing postsecondary education or training—funds that support them to achieve their goals.

Our success over the past two years has proven that we are on the right trajectory for the future. With a strong foundation in place, we will innovate, grow, and reach more students in need. Thank you for supporting Pathways to Education and contributing to the future of Canada and its bright leaders.

Pathways to Education Program Delivery

With each graduation, we are one step closer to realizing our vision of breaking the cycle of poverty through education. However, we recognize that there are still thousands more young people across the country who could benefit from Pathways programming. We believe in their potential to succeed and are focused
