"Create Your Future" Employment Center
The Crossroads’ “Create Your Future” Employment Center provides teens in Israel with encouragement and support. Opportunities to learn essential job skills are provided in an environment where teens already know they will receive understanding, respect, and advice. Supervised job internships and apprenticeships for teens are offered with local businesses. In addition, the Employment Center offers opportunities for our teens to make contact with successful role models in the community, opening their minds to future opportunities.
Our philosophy is to help teens acquire the tools they need to find a job, and then strengthen their ability to maintain a successful employment experience by supporting them throughout the job experience. Our staff monitors teens’ progress, helping to increase the length of employment, building on their ability to stay in one position, and overall aiming to improve success in the workplace.
