Because Our Community Matters.


Shauna Hunter

Welcome To Pathfinders,

an education, life skills, and violence prevention program for children and teens for all of Muskegon. We pride ourselves in molding boys and girls into young men and women destined to achieve greatness in all they do. We are dedicated to changing lives through tutoring, mentoring, teaching good stewardship, developing strong work ethics, and having respect for others.

We are proud to offer our youth access to a safe and violence-free environment to achieve short and long-range goals.
