“Crossroads for Kids inspires youth to develop their innate potential to become members of the next generation of diverse young leaders in Boston and Massachusetts, breaking the cycle of poverty and under-achievement and yielding systemic change in the communities where they live. Through a unique combination of immersive summer camp and year-round mentoring and enrichment programs, Crossroads provides youth ages 7 – 18 years old with comprehensive support, resources and opportunities which guide them toward academic success, higher education, meaningful careers and responsible citizenship…Currently, of the over 1000 youth Crossroads for Kids serves annually in our immersive summer programs, 60% participate in our comprehensive multi-year, year-round programs. Our experience has proven that children who are long-term members of our Crossroads for Kids year-round family (5-10 years) maintain a motivation for academic success resulting in 100% graduating from high school with 90% achieving college acceptance. The majority of our teens are first generation college students and serve in leadership positions on their campuses. Over 25% of our graduates continue their relationship with Crossroads for Kids and return to work in our programs excited to pay their experience forward.”-www.crossroads4kids.org
Talk about an AMAZING program. On Saturday, March 14, 2015 I had the privilege of photographing the Crossroads career day. 12 incredible students and “Award Winning” Director, Deb Samuels came to Charles David Salon to tour and learn about the beauty industry from owner David Honeycutt and 19-year employee Kelly Beery, followed by a delicious lunch at The Fours in Norwell.
Crossroads For Kids has such a special place in the heart of the Charles David family and I cannot be more appreciative of having the opportunity to be a part of this very special day!
Thank you Crossroads For Kids and Charles David, I look forward to being a part of more events in the future!
