Overview

Mission Statement

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


Background Statement

Crossroads has been changing the lives of under-resourced youth from Greater Boston since 1936, when we began operating as a residential summer camp. Since our founding, we have been focused on giving youth the experiences, support and confidence they need to succeed. Our program offerings have evolved over the ensuing decades in line with youth development best practices. In 2003, based on the incredible outcomes we were seeing among the small number of participants in our intensive leadership program, we transitioned into our current model of serving youth year-round for up to 10 years of their lives. This change strengthened our ability to level the playing field for youth across Eastern Massachusetts, as our youth report increased self-confidence and community involvement, and graduate high school and continue to college at much higher rates than their peers.

The Crossroads experience begins with the first summer at camp — where kids let their walls down, develop trusting relationships, learn coping and communication skills, and find the sense of belonging and stability that is the foundation of our program. After one summer at camp youth may transition into our 10 year, school year program focused on leadership, social awareness, college and career, and community action. Through these 10 years of diverse life-changing experiences and opportunities, we help kids develop character, strength, and resilience: traits proven to ensure they succeed in school and in life.

In 2010 Crossroads launched a strategic plan aimed at expanding the reach of our year-round programming. We successfully met or exceeded every benchmark, and in the span of 3 years expanded our year-round enrollment from 380 to 550 youth and grew our fundraising capacity from $1 million to $1.8 million dollars. We are currently working with our Board of Trustees to refine and further expand our goals for the next 3-5 years to maintain the highest quality programming as we build on our successes and continue to expand our service offerings and welcome youth into the second family they find at Crossroads for Kids.


Impact Statement

Crossroads’ 10-year program empowers Massachusetts at-risk youth to become confident and socially responsible young adults who strive for academic success, higher education and fulfilling careers. Our curriculum grows with our youth as they progress through our programs, from 3rd grade through high school graduation and beyond. At Crossroads we understand that youth need a comprehensive range of services and experiences to mature into happy, successful young adults. Some highlights of our focus areas include:

Academic Success: Our uniquely comprehensive 10 year, year round model produces powerful outcomes: 100% of our program graduates also graduate high school; 90% are accepted to college; and 40% of our alumni return to us as staff and mentors, paying their experiences with Crossroads forward to the next generation of leaders.

Community Engagement: Every student in our year-round program has opportunities to participate in community service; upon entering 8th grade, our teens participate in 30 hours of community service, which will increase each year throughout their 5 years in our program.

Health and Wellness: Through our programming, we challenge kids to try new activities and learn about healthy behaviors. We provide education and resources about nutritious food choices, equip them with the tools and knowledge to stay fit at home, and give them unique opportunities to try new fitness activities through trek.

 


Needs Statement

Financial Support: Since 2010 we have had significant success in growing our fundraising capacity. We have substantially expanded our donor base, thanks to a newly revitalized Board of Trustees, and have increased total funds raised by 69% over the last four years. In order to sustain our programming long term, we need to continue expanding our support base and increasing our fundraising capacity, including both an increase in annual support and a campaign to further build our endowment and meet our ongoing need to maintain our facilities.

Board Membership: The recently completed board assessment identified the need for leadership expertise in the following areas: Public Relations, Construction, Food Service, Venture Capitalists, Banking, Business and Finance.

In-Kind Support: In kind goods and services would greatly impact our ability to serve more youth by allowing us to budget more resources towards running programming instead of purchasing goods and services. In-kind needs include: Food Service, Program Supplies (water sports, biking, trek gear), Office Equipment and Furniture.


CEO Statement

I am honored each day to be a part of this incredible family we call Crossroads. What makes us most proud is seeing our graduates develop into community focused young adults who show kindness and respect for everyone around them and understand the value and intrinsic reward found in service to others. The Crossroads for Kids family is committed to a better future for each child and teen in our community. Together, we are changing the lives of under-resourced youth in Greater Boston and Eastern Massachusetts. When they succeed, we succeed. On behalf of everyone at Crossroads, thank you for supporting the work we are honored to do each day.


Board Chair Statement

When discussing his dedication to Crossroads, Kevin said: "My particular epiphany that I needed to get involved with Crossroads came about when I witnessed the happiness and joy among the children as they completely emerged themselves in “camp life” at Camp Wing in Duxbury: most specifically, their afternoon ritual of encouraging everyone (adults included!) to let loose in song and dance during lunch break. Though dancing, unfortunately, was never a part of the Boys Club camps I attended some 55 years ago, it did touch close to home as it reminded me of all the great experiences and memories I had during those summers. In all my years of working with kids I cannot recall a time where I was more overwhelmed by the absolute glee on the faces of children."


Geographic Area Served

Greater Boston Region-All Neighborhoods
Northeast Massachusetts Region

Programs

Camp Crossroads

Serving students in grades 1­8, Camp Crossroads offers 2 overnight camp programs that are designed to address the unique needs of youth facing a wide range of social, economic and emotional challenges. During the summer campers grow in confidence and develop the skills and strong relationships that form a solid foundation for campers who enroll in our school year programming. (Open application process).

Budget  $790,000.00
Category  Youth Development, General/Other Youth Development, General/Other
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success  By the end of each summer, we hope that each child who has spent one or more sessions at camp feels prepared and confident to take on the coming school year. While at camp, we also expect that each camper will make at least one friend outside of his or her typical social circle and will try at least one completely new activity or experience - what we call “challenge by choice.” Our main goal each summer is to ensure that every camper feels part of a safe and inclusive community, which we are able to measure using a comprehensive youth development survey managed externally by Youth Development Strategies, Inc.
Program Long-Term Success 

Camp changes lives. We know this from the surveys and measurements we take to ensure that our programs continue to be effective in creating nurturing spaces where youth from under-resourced communities can learn and grow. We know this from the joy on the faces of new campers and the self-assurance of returning campers.

Beginning in 3rd grade, kids in our summer program are eligible to transition into our year-round program which serves between 550-600 kids annually and is comprised of 2 age-specific curricular initiatives: the Crossroads Continuity Initiative (CCI) and the C5 Teen Leadership Program.

Program Success Monitored By  For our Camp Wing and Camp Mitton sites, we rely on the Youth Development Strategies, Inc questionnaire to evaluate the experience we are giving our campers across 5 “supports and opportunities”: supportive relationships; safety; meaningful youth involvement; skill building; and community involvement. We have been working with YDSI to measure our program impact over the past 10 years, and youth at each of our 3 sites consistently report high levels of feeling like they are safe, that they belong to a community, and that they are learning new skills. In summer 2012 we also introduced the Student Leadership Practices Inventory for our teens at Camp Lapham.
Examples of Program Success 
One of the great successes of our camp programming is our retention rate. In 2013, 60% of our kids and teens were returning campers from 2012. This is important because the myriad benefits of camp – including improved academic confidence, strong social skills and peer groups, and a willingness to try new experiences – build each year.


Even more, the youth in our summer programs are having life-changing experiences. As one of our campers says, “I am so grateful to have found my Crossroads family! I have learned more about myself than I ever would have without them. I have grown to live up to my full potential and I can’t even begin to imagine my life without this program, this place and these people.”

Crossroads C5 Leaders

Serving students grades 8­12 the Crossroads C5 Leaders Program is a summer and school year program that helps teen leaders define their leadership style and expand their academic, career and civic horizons. Through a combination of workshops and signature experiences participants graduate with the confidence and readiness to take the lead in their own lives and to create a better future for themselves and their communities. (Nomination only – five year commitment required)

 

Budget  $755,000.00
Category  Youth Development, General/Other Youth Leadership
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years) At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success 

We measure short-term and ongoing success with year-over-year retention rates, currently 90% for our C5 program, and rates of participation in our summer and year-round programming. For example, we aim to have 85% of the teens in a given year of the program participate in the signature experience: 10th graders take on a 2 week Wyoming backpacking trip, 11th graders go on a Road to College Tour around New England, and 12th graders take a week-long community service trip over their school vacations. We aim for 100% of the teens in our program to make contact at least twice per month with their dedicated Leadership Coach (a member of Crossroads’ year-round or seasonal staff) to keep them on track with school, healthy relationships and behavior, and planning for their futures.

Program Long-Term Success 

Crossroads for Kids’ C5 Teen Leadership Program positions teens to become the next generation of diverse young leaders. Over the long term, we are creating a cohort of young adults who are invested in improving themselves and their communities, seeking higher education and fulfilling career opportunities, and serving as active mentors to the generations following them. For teens who have been in our program 5 or more years, we aim to maintain our rate of 95% successfully entering further education or the workforce within 1 year of graduation from C5 and high school.

 

Program Success Monitored By 

Crossroads for Kids’ theory of change and measurement plans are laid out in our evaluation plan, A Decade of Change, which we implemented in 2011. We are currently using data to drive strategic decisions about how our inputs and outputs are affecting our outcomes in our logic model, which traces our goals for healthy development of low-income youth from Eastern MA over the course of ten years. The data we collect - through surveys, a database tracking academic achievements, and interviews with program participants and families – is applied to answering our strategic questions so that we can be confident we are running an efficient program.


To ensure that we are achieving the outcomes defined in our logic model, we rely on both internal and external evaluation factors. Internally, we use program participant surveys, Leadership Coach reports, Efforts to Outcomes (ETO) tracking database, and Student Tracker for alumni success data; externally, we participate in Youth Development Strategies, Inc. (YDSI) and Student Leadership Practices Inventory (SLPI) surveys annually to measure our outcomes against youth development industry standards. We are tracking this data so that we can answer the strategic questions we have outlined for the organization through work with evaluation experts.

Examples of Program Success 

Of teens who have been involved in Crossroads for 5 or more years, 100% graduate from high school, 90% are accepted to college and 85% enroll in college. Of these, 78% are first generation scholars. Moreover, 40% of our graduates return to work at Crossroads, committed to giving back to the kids who are just like they used to be.

We would like to share a story from one of our C5 graduates, Krystal, who graduated from high school and our C5 program in 2013 and is preparing for a bright future which includes attending college on a full scholarship. “Before Crossroads I was a shell of myself, living in poverty and suffering from low self-esteem and depression and I felt like I didn’t belong anywhere. Crossroads shifted my perspective and helped me find my inner strength. They gave me the opportunity to pay my experiences forward and change other kids’ lives as a mentor. By becoming a mentor myself I had come full circle, and saw the power of my own influence. I want to show the next generation of Crossroads kids that nothing is impossible; because with Crossroads by my side I did the impossible and turned my life around and have become the happy, optimistic college freshman that I am today.”

 


Crossroads Junior Leaders

Serving students in grades 3­7, the Crossroads Junior Leaders is a school year program that channels the curiosity and enthusiasm of this age group to build confidence, positive friendships and the ability to navigate challenging emotions and stressful situations in healthy ways. Crossroads Junior Leaders teaches students to set ambitious goals and view post­secondary education as achievable. (Nomination only, must have attended a minimum of 1 summer at Camp Crossroads).

Budget  $41,000.00
Category  Youth Development, General/Other Youth Leadership
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years) At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success  For our CCI students, we measure short-term success by tracking positive behavior and achievements both at school and in their communities. Additionally, we look for ongoing success with year-over-year retention rates and rates of participation in our summer and year-round programming. For example, we aim to have all students in CCI at or above grade level in their school work, which we track by getting copies of all report cards. We aim for 100% of the youth in CCI to make contact at least once per month with their dedicated Leadership Coach (a member of Crossroads’ year-round or seasonal staff) to keep them on track with school, healthy relationships and behavior, and planning for their futures.
Program Long-Term Success  Crossroads Continuity Initiative is designed to engage kids in 3rd-7th grade in a safe community of peers and reliable adults, emphasizing personal and social development and experiential learning opportunities. Our goals for this age-specific program are to keep the children positively engaged in school and support them through any difficulties in their home or social lives. Over the long term, we want 100% of our CCI students to feel prepared to matriculate into C5 and then into high school, showing respect for themselves and their communities and excited to build the future they wish to see.
Program Success Monitored By  Crossroads for Kids’ theory of change and measurement plans are laid out in our evaluation plan, A Decade of Change, which we implemented in 2011. We are currently using data to drive strategic decisions about how our inputs and outputs are affecting our outcomes in our logic model, which traces our goals for healthy development of low-income youth from Eastern MA over the course of ten years. The data we collect - through surveys, a database tracking academic achievements, and interviews with program participants and families – is applied to answering our strategic questions so that we can be confident we are running an efficient program.
Examples of Program Success 

In the participant surveys we run at the end of each programmatic event, we evaluate the 4 CCI cornerstone areas of Culture, Communication, Choices and Confidence. With a 97% response rate, we can see that children feel empowered by our CCI programming.  


Additionally, we’d like you to meet Kyle. Kyle’s first summer with Crossroads was rocky because he was young, homesick, and didn’t know anyone. School was hard for Kyle. He couldn’t sit still, and he was tired of being labeled special because he was in a behavioral program. He thought summer camp would be the same thing. Despite trouble making friends, Kyle soon came to trust his counselors because “they told him he could be somebody” and told “great stories about Inca warriors.” Tough beyond his years, Kyle still needed someone to tuck him in at night and read him stories about warriors beating the odds. He was looking for hope at the age of seven. When he returned the following summer, Kyle leapt from the bus steps into his counselor’s arms. He was back, and he was ready to make a change. This young boy was able to tell the new campers that he’d had anger problems in the past but that “camp changes that.” His helpful attitude set Kyle apart as a real leader: he sometimes read to the other campers, always swept the cabin in the morning and evening, and showed that he wanted to help his counselors.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
