Crossroads has been piloting a formalized Fellowship Initiative designed to support the professional development of young leaders through training, mentorship and hands-on work experience. Our Fellows are recent college graduates who have either graduated from our programs or have worked as a seasonal staff member. The Fellowship not only allows young professionals a chance to learn and grow in a supportive environment, it also helps to increase capacity within our organization.
We had such a successful year in 2016 that the pilot has become a permanent part of our operations, and we are now welcoming our 2017 class. Two members of the class of 2016 have joined our full-time ranks.
