Community Collaborations

Scholars Landscaping a Yard


Crossroads Community Collaboration series is an opportunity for Crossroads staff, board members, scholars, and their families to participate in community outreach and support other local nonprofits.

For each event, we partner with a different organization to complete a community service project while showcasing the important people-centered work that is happening all over the city.

These collaborations are also an occasion for Crossroads scholars to develop leadership skills and build self-esteem — when scholars graduate from our program, we want them to be well-rounded individuals with strong ties to their community, accountable for themselves and their neighbors.

[These events] are an opportunity to take what we've been given and give back. We have a great community at Crossroads and we want to share that with the community around us.
