We believe every young adult can find a path that leads to a life and career of fulfillment.

Each year A Path In The Woods Foundation continues to advance its mission through programs for high school students and the community to create the opportunities and culture that enable every child to develop their innate gifts and guide our youth to their own path to a lifetime of well-being.

Our Mission

The Foundation was created in 2009 in memory and in honor of the spirit and ideas of Daniel J. McCabe of Wellesley, MA. It is dedicated to opening new doors of opportunity and exploration for the young men and women in our community and beyond who are searching for their path in life and need assistance, financial or otherwise in beginning their journey.

Our History

Our history begins in the life and death of Dan McCabe.  Dan was a student at Wellesley High School, where, with a determination to forge a place for kids searching for a sense of belonging Dan campaigned for a permanent location for the path in the woods, a place kids could go to gather in piece and harmony.
