I am Student Leader At CrossingBarriers (CB). The reason I am involve with CB for 3 years is because i have never been a program like CB where they train the students to be the leaders in their community and work on any issues you want and actually see some result. I am usually use to sitting in a program while the elders preach the whole time. At CB I got to work on Bullying project that most Students in St. Paul school are facing today and they gave me a chance to lead the Youth Leadership Workshop. CB is one of great small Program that makes differences in youth life.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Trying to close the achievement gap in Eden Priory, train Students to be the leaders in their community and work on the issues they are facing and take some actions to get a result we are looking for.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
make sure CrossingBarriers is a program that is located in every communities/ citied/states because it makes difference in youth life and it is really good program. But it is missing the support financially so once they get that i know it would happen.
Volunteer & I worked with other high school students on workshps that I was part of the people that created, made a survey and gave others the survey to take it and i also do focus groups in communities and school.
