Mike, Ben, and Darwin from Southern California Crossroads just registered to attend the Change The Game Conference! SoCal Crossroads was created to assist under privileged youth who come from low income families in violence plagued communities. Their objective is to lead them to a healthy, peaceful and productive lifestyle through prevention, intervention and re-entry services. Crossroads serves youth in elementary, middle and high school offering a range of programming including: mentoring, film and media, tutoring, and sports and fitness. Programming focuses on youth violence prevention including gang violence and bullying. Crossroads empower program participants and has seen reduced gang participation and improved academic performance.
We’re excited for the SoCal Crossroads Team to join us! They bring a lot of great experience around youth violence prevention to the conference. Check out a few of their PSAs they created around youth violence prevention here.
