Crossroads partnered with ChildFund International 11/9/2013

Crossroads will be working on 3 projects with ChildFund International:

Project 1 Youth Employment Initiative- we will enroll 50 youth (ages 16 to 25) in a youth employment initiative. This program will prepare youth for the workforce by increasing employability skills, work ethics, life skills, personal finance and leadership skills. We are required to get 29 youth employed, but we will exceed this minimum requirement.

Project 2 Youth Leadership Council- we will service 2000 youth in the Rio Grande Valley. Crossroads will set up youth leadership council chapters in communities where economically disadvantage youth live. Youth will have ongoing leadership and life skills training. These chapters will consist of youth leaders who will identify problems in their communities and develop solutions to solve the problem. Youth will learn many skills and improve their communities.

Project 3 Youth Civic Engagement- this past week we worked with ChildFund and several other partners to develop a model for youth civic engagement. Crossroads will continue to work with CFI to create the perfect model, beta test it here in the Valley and then initiate the model throughout the world where CFI service youth.

Crossroads has been blessed in not only having the privilege of servicing youth in the Rio Grande Valley, but will have a greater impact on youth across the world.

Developing youth for a better tomorrow


Intersection encourages administration workshops for monetarily drawback youth in Hidalgo, Cameron, Willacy and Starr Counties in South Texas.

Our workshops majorly affect the adolescent we serve. We will probably urge youth to wind up pioneers in their groups and to urge them to serve their group with hireling initiative.
