Our co-founders Executive Director Gerard Truesdale, and Program Director Arturo Mckie, created Crossroads: Pathways to Success to help guide and educate our future leaders. Through establishing a community role as educational motivators and role models, Truesdale and Mckie offer students a real understanding of what it takes to be successful in professional and personal life. During the 24 week program, students will complete sessions dedicated to each of the focus areas. Sessions will include activities, lectures, role play, career experts, and much more to help build your skills throughout your program participation.
We ask that students take responsibility for the direction of their life path and we proudly work with fellow community leaders to help students learn to make a commitment to work toward their own success.
