"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. The Employment Center offers opportunities for our teens to make contact with successful role models in the community, opening their minds to future opportunities.

In addition, each summer Crossroads has an Apprenticeship program with supervised job internships and apprenticeships for teens who are paired with local businesses.

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.

The Crossroads Summer Apprenticeship Program:
A thoughtful WIN-WIN program for teens and parents.
The Crossroads Summer Apprenticeship program is an opportunity for teens (ages 14-17) to spend their summer working and earning money in a supportive and structured employment environment. Teens are placed in employment opportunities as apprentices in order to learn vocational skills, establish a work ethic, develop job confidence, and participate in a positive personal growth experience.
Summer 2024: July 1 – July 31
