My Future Pathways (MFP) is a helping-hand program providing direction, guidance, and experiences for underserved youth and their families in Eagle County, CO. We help young people find positive life pathways through engagement in self-discovery, self-development, and self-actualization while guiding them through many of life’s toughest challenges.

By helping Eagle County youth develop critical skillsets, we hope to instill some of our core values like discipline, grit, and integrity —essential building blocks that will benefit them for a lifetime. Our process involves engagement in workshops, mentoring, tutoring, and a wide variety of cultural enrichment activities designed to enhance social capital and break some socio-economic barriers to attainment.

MFP began as the vision of philanthropist Ron Davis, also the founder of the highly successful Guardian Scholars Program. Mr. Davis used his decades-long track record of promoting communities’ systemic growth and success, especially those facing more significant socio-economic headwinds. At the time of MFP’s founding, only 50% of first-generation boys from local immigrant families (first generation) were graduating high school, and only 11% of those graduating high school went on to finish college.

Since its inception in 2019, MFP has grown substantially and has become a crucial community anchor non-profit. MFP tackles the inequities facing predominantly Hispanic, first-generation, under-resourced students and families through mentoring, tutoring, family support programming, scholarships, and hosting enrichment events at no cost to them.

In 2021, MFP reached over 370 unique individuals through all services for approximately 17,000 impact hours. The same year, over 400 local families attended MFP outreach events, including parent orientation, Hispanic Month programming, and other outreach events.

In 2022 our wrap-around service footprint has grown to include over 660 youth through dedicated mentoring in local schools and at our safe-space youth centers in Edwards and Gypsum. Mentoring activities include tutoring support, group development events, one-on-one time with peer mentors, and a variety of sports, clubs, and other engagements. We also have 31 active scholarship recipients pursuing bachelor's and associate's degrees.

MFP largely owes its extraordinary success to the generosity of local donors and can still use ongoing support to bring its programming to more members of Vail Valley Community without access to critical resources.

MFP is a proud community partner of Eagle Valley Behavioral Health.
