crossroads

Our new program serves girls and boys ages 11-17. This program is facilitated in schools, in after-school programs and foster care.  We know that the transition to adolescence can be difficult and full of many decisions, conflicts and opportunities.  Crossroads helps young females and males understand relationships, reduce teen dating violence, promote respect through the understanding of the responsibility that the role brings.  Throughout the program, we work on building self-esteem and participants can be connected to a mentor for additional growth.
