About Crossroads

Crossroads empowers youth to unlock their potential and positively impact the world.

Since 1936, Crossroads has provided young people with access to opportunities for experiential learning, social-emotional skill development, and relationship building with peers and mentors. Through unique challenges and growth opportunities, Crossroads participants become independent and resilient young people who are capable of building the future they wish to see.

2O2O was a year filled with suffering, turmoil, and discord. In Greater Boston, Crossroads youth and their families were among those hardest hit by the pandemic and social unrest. Educational, economic, and public health disparities laid bare the inequities that too many in our society face on a daily basis.

We embrace 2021 with enormous enthusiasm, anticipation, and resolve. Please help Crossroads innovate and grow to provide a homecoming to Crossroads youth: a return to familiar spaces, shared experiences that unite us, and a community that will always be here.


Social Work Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Jerusalem, Jerusalem
“I loved being able to interact and work with teens who may have been struggling with mental illness, experiencing homelessness, or experiencing any other issues. Working in a country with a completely new culture and language was one of the most challenging, yet rewarding experiences I have ever done. Being able to apply all of my skills that I have learned through my courses at Westfield State in real life situations was beyond exciting!”
