Current Pathway Needs

Looking for volunteer opportunities in Canton or North Olmsted, Ohio? Volunteer and donate time, money, and resources to Pathway Caring for Children and our families.

Summer is coming and that means TRUST Camp is right around the corner! We are specifically in need of volunteers ages 17 and up to come for a week of fun and adventure. 

This is a therapeutic camp for about 40 Pathway teens to experience traditional summer fun with the supervision of therapists and case managers. This camp is a full 5 days Sunday, July 14- Thursday, July 18, and is an unpaid opportunity. There is also a training with Pathway staff to prepare for camp.
