Community Partners

In addition to our high-quality camp partners, Wayfinders partners with many local organizations who offer education, job training, skill building, and youth development programs, as well as goods and/or services so that our scholars are well equipped for many new opportunities and activities over the duration of their time in our program.

Our community partners provide us with a wide variety of support, including use of their facilities or buses at no cost, free or reduced admission/fees for our scholars and their mentors, tangible goods, and targeted educational or skill development programs including internships, job-shadowing opportunities, and paid employment. If you would like to join us as a community partner, please reach out to Mollie James ([email protected]).
