Pathfinders Reading Series.

Finding Inspiration in Every Story.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela


Our Story

During this COVID-19 Pandemic, Pathfinders saw the opportunity and potential for children and mentors to connect in a unique way. We asked a few select mentors to help bring stories alive by reading them for children in our community, unable to enjoy these readings in person.
