Pathway Partners Mentoring Program
Ginger Sternweis is Program Director for Pathway Partners Mentoring Program, a United Way Partner Program based at Marshfield High School. The program was founded in Marshfield by Sue Twiggs who brought the concept here after being involved with Pathway Partners in Maine. She worked with Jane Wagner to establish the program here. The mission of the program is to expose high school students to nurturing relationships with caring adults and to the diversity of opportunities and experiences in our community. Students and mentors are matched according to interests, hobbies, and career paths. The minimum commitment is to meet one hour, once a month, during the school year. Through the mentoring, students become engaged in their community, develop positive relationships with adults, build confidence, and learn about different career and education opportunities.

Mentors and students often develop a strong and lasting relationship that can extend beyond the students’ high school years. In addition to talking about and exploring future career possibilities, mentors and “mentees” may share experiences together such as volunteering in the community, job shadowing, dinner and a movie or play, and outdoor activities or sporting events.

Mentoring provides benefits not only to the students involved but also to the mentor, participating businesses, and the community. It fosters social responsibility & civic engagement, provides employee satisfaction & retention, offers employees skills based volunteerism, cultivates and develops a future workforce, supports vibrant communities, and prepares future citizens and citizen leaders. Student confidence and success leads to a prepared, productive workforce.

Ginger said Pathway Partners has succeeded because of the tremendous support and the volunteer efforts of individuals in this community. “We have the great fortune to have the youth of our community who are eager to go out into the world to make their mark and make a difference in the lives of those around them.” But the continued success of the program depends on the continued support of local businesses and individuals.
