In 1997, Deb and Darrin Landry were inspired to develop a program for youth to attend after school that was safe, educational, and supported community involvement and volunteering.  Advocates for a safe, healthy environment for children, youth, and teens started the organization known as Crossroads today.  

The Landry's believe that when we positively work together as a community to raise our children, we can create a world of strong, socially, and environmentally resilient adults.


Their program came to fruition on January 1, 1999, when Crossroads Youth Center (CYC) became a 501 c3 organization,  a youth organization that fosters positive character education and empowers youth to value and participate in their communities as volunteers and leaders.  CYC has expanded its many programs internationally, reaching the US, Canada, and the Caribbean Islands.  

They welcome everyone to get involved as an individual or with your family to teach tolerance, inclusion, resilience, kindness, and respect in our schools, community, and the world.
