The desire to allow people with dysfunctional or difficult backgrounds, an opportunity to find a mentor that caters to their development. Not their own actualized needs. Our systems goal was to create software for finding a mentor that they may not choose for themselves, but has a lot to offer them that they have not yet discovered.
What it does
Open Paths strives to match marginalized young adults within the Texas legal system with mentors using algorithms based on personal, professional and emotional attributes.
With our refined matching processes, youth are provided the opportunity to find a knowledgeable guide to assist in their personal and professional development.
