Adventurers and Pathfinders volunteers are adult who teach valuable lessons to today’s young people. From left, Pathfinder Deputy Director Gailene Morgan, Pathfinder Director Kevin Morgan, Pastor Kevin Brown and Adventurer Director Maureen Monsegue.

Kenia Jasmin, an Adventurer and kindergartener at P.S. 104 in Queens, enjoys making arts and crafts related to the various subjects, such as butterflies and flowers. “I like to go to church everyday and the club teaches me to be obedient and be a good person,”

she said.

Pathfinder parent Lavern Bartley of Far Rockaway decided to sign her 14-year-old daughter up for the organization to keep her busy and off the phone and computer. “It also helps her develop good skills and character as well as how to be strong and help others,” Bartley said. “These days parents are so busy and sometimes they don’t have the time to focus on their children as much as they should so they’re able to participate in these activities and be good role models.”

Brown, who joined the organization himself at 2-years-old, believes the club is good for youth. “It gives them a sense of direction and an option,” he said. “From my personal experience, all my friends who went through the club are successful today and the credit their success to the club.”
