Where the Money Goes
In November, 2015 Pathways took 17 students from inner city Minneapolis Cristo Rey high school to Bogota, Colombia. Pathways is now bringing the Bogota students to Minnesota. Students arrive July 3rd for 10 days. We are excited about being a part of making it happen and will continue to post updates so watch this space for further details.
