GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A group in Greensboro wants to make sure high school students go to college or get a job and that's not all. The Crossroads Pathways to Success program also teaches young men important life skills.
Gerard Truesdale and Arturo Mckie started the program in 2009 with the sole purpose of helping high school students get to college after high school or to obtain a job.
Next week, the group will host its 5th annual CrossroadsPTS Summer Empowerment Camp from July 14-16, 2016 in Greensboro.
Some of the guest speakers will be Gene Banks, local Duke basketball legend, David Fraccaro from FaithWorks Ministries, Greg Scott an etiquette coach, an attorney from the DA's office, and motivational speaker, Wendel Dandridge.
The theme of this years camp is leadership and etiquette; which is a key to success.
"We have guest speakers lined up that will focus on different aspects of leadership and etiquette for the students such as how to conduct yourself at a formal dinner, dressing for success, interview skills, and much more," said McKie.
The camp wraps up Friday, July 16, 2016 with a field trip planned to go to Spare Time for bowling and laser tag from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. The camp is located at Providence Baptist Church located at 1106 Tuscaloosa Street and runs from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. The cost of the camp is free and the target audience are 8th grade – 12th grade males. Donations can be picked up by us or sent to 502 Staunton Drive in Greensboro, NC.
