Dean Mazhawidza has a passion for sport and youth development. His vision is to create a competent youth society. Due to the high global youth unemployment and poverty in developing countries. Future Pathways Consultants was created by its founder, as an innovative private enterprise that direct youths who do not know what they want to do with their lives after completing high school or tertiary education. Which has contributed to the significant low enrolment levels in colleges, universities and later results in unemployment.
The consulting service allows young people to make fun and interactive assessments that will help them identify their skills, interests, subject/degree choices, competencies, values, abilities, strengths, passions and career choices. This will help them to gather relevant information to make an informed career decision.
