Utilizing the Phoenix Curriculum, an evidence-based program, Crossroads to Change is a 16 week course for at-risk middle school girls that helps improve decision making and conflict resolution skills, increases self-esteem, explores choices, and helps the girls strive for success through education. Participants meet in a group setting each week after school on campus for an hour and a half. The group addresses a variety of topics including teen dating, teen violence, gang participation, self-esteem, decision making, conflict resolution, self-defense, setting appropriate boundaries, and college/career planning. For the final project, each participant writes an autobiography addressing personal future goals. At the conclusion of each program, a graduation/celebration ceremony is held, inviting families, school personnel, and law enforcement.
