In 1997, Deb and Darrin Landry were inspired to develop 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, they started the organization that today is known as Crossroads.  

The Landry's believe 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, 2019 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 their 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, resilience, kindness and respect in our schools, community, and the world.
