Wayfinder serves Maine youth who need a second chance at high school graduation. More than half of our students are teen parents and all have struggled in traditional school settings. Many have experienced housing and food insecurity.
Now, more than ever, we are providing a critical lifeline for our students in need. We continue to provide individualized instruction and support by phone and internet. We continue to deliver food and supplies to students’ doorsteps and to ensure they have the support needed to stay safe, healthy and on track for their graduation goals.
Your gift will help ensure these young people are able to build their academic, parenting and practical life skills, graduate with their high school diplomas, increase their economic security and provide the best possible future for their children.
“My time in Wayfinder Schools has been life-changing. I learned many everyday life skills along with budgeting, early childhood development, home safety/organization, and more. I'm very lucky to have had this opportunity to get a real high school diploma”- Devon D., Class of 2020
“Wayfinder Schools’ Passages Program was my saving grace. It gave me a second chance to finish high school and graduate with a real diploma. I can’t thank all of the staff at Wayfinder Schools enough for all of the hard work and effort they put into each and every student. They truly change lives for the better. I’m now able to move on and start college in the fall of 2020.”-Elizabeth H., Class of 2020
“Wayfinder turns your dreams and aspirations into real-life and reality. These teachers turn a statistic into a success story.”-Chynna C., Class of 2020
