About Youth Crossroads


Youth Crossroads, Inc. is a non-profit community-based organization whose mission is to act in the best interest of youth, guiding them through life’s challenges, and inspiring them to discover new opportunities for personal development, healthy relationships, and positive community involvement.

Serving Berwyn, Cicero, Forest View, Lyons, and Stickney for over 44 years as a licensed child welfare organization, Youth Crossroads has assisted thousands of young people ages 10 to 17 and their families through individual and group counseling; after school enrichment and summer programs; teen leadership training; and 24/7 crisis response services.

We work closely with local police departments, school districts and other social service providers to help youth move towards maturity and positive futures in today’s challenging environment.
