The average college graduate earns over $36,000 more per year than someone who drops out from high school, and is half as likely to end up in poverty. That’s why the work of Crossroads Foundation is indeed life-changing. 

 

We provide a proven pathway out of poverty -- and into college and life success -- for low-income youth living throughout Greater Pittsburgh who would otherwise need to attend a failing public high school.

 

What makes our program such a great investment is that it’s a two-way street:

  1. We provide our youth with a quality high school education while also developing the other skills they need to get into college and succeed there.
  2. In return, our students must maintain a high GPA and behavioral standards – and our parents and guardians must participate in our programming.

As a result, 77% of Crossroads’ alumni earn their college degrees or are on track to complete them — over triple the rate of their low-income peers.
