Youth Crossroads, Inc. (YC) 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.


Since 1974, YC has assisted tens of thousands of youth and their families from the Berwyn, Cicero, Stickney, Forest View, and Lyons, Illinois communities. We collaborate extensively with local school districts, government agencies, police departments, and other human service organizations to provide youth and family counseling services, crisis intervention for runaway and locked-out youth, school/community-based trauma response and prevention programs, after-school enrichment programs, and youth leadership development services. All YC services are provided at no cost to youth and families and are bi-cultural, bi-lingual English/Spanish.
