Arizona Quest for Kids and Phoenix Youth at Risk had similar missions of opening new doors to at-risk Arizona youth through mentoring, enrichment, and personal development programs. In 2010, the two organizations began to explore a merger in order to provide enhanced services to their communities and constituents. The Lodestar Foundation made two grants to help fund merger services. Funds from the first grant were used to complete research and analysis for a merger assessment. The second grant funded the facilitation and implementation of the merger plan; the merged organizations became New Pathways for Youth.
