Accepting Applications for 2020 Paducah Pathfinders Program

Date of release:  February 19, 2020

High school students who live in Paducah or McCracken County are invited to apply for the Paducah Pathfinders program organized by Mayor Brandi Harless.  To apply, complete the application or scan the QR code 2020 Pathfinder Flyeron the flyer.  Applications are being accepted until noon on Monday, February 24.

The Paducah Pathfinders is a student-led program that focuses on civic participation and community engagement.  Pathfinders attend weekly meetings and interact with community leaders. While this program requires a time commitment, it is also a great opportunity for making new friends, learning about Paducah, becoming a more involved citizen, and gaining volunteer experience at local events.

Former Pathfinders are automatically chosen to participate again this year.  A mandatory orientation for all returning and new Pathfinders and parents will be Tuesday, March 3 at 5:30 p.m. with the first Pathfinder meeting set for March 4. 

If you have a question, contact the guidance counselor at your school or email Lyndsey Birdsong in Mayor Harless’ office at
