Life at The CrossRoads Curriculum

What We Offer75 Countries | 16 languages | 5 units | 30 lessons

Unit 1 Relationships

The types of relationships we choose can have a significant impact on the decisions we make for our lives. Some relationships are naturally a part of our lives, other relationships are formed as a result of the choices we make...  

Unit 2 Character Connection

Can your friend be trusted to do what he or she says? Can you? Do you show respect for others? Are you responsible? Are you kind? Do you treat others fairly? In this unit, students learn to determine the quality of their relationships...

This unit helps adolescents evaluate the purposes of sex and the appropriate context for a sexual relationship. Sexually transmitted infections, especially HIV/AIDS, are addressed in detail...  

Unit 4 Life Skills

Students are given the skills and opportunity to decide how they will act on what they know, how they will handle difficult situations, and how they will make and follow through on good character-based decisions for their lives...  

Unit 5 Navigating Your Future

Students examine their lives at the crossroads of decision and change, and are given confidence to navigate the future. Where will you go from here? This is a very positive, encouraging unit...


This curriculum is a tool for educators and other community-based instructors. It is designed to help students internalize positive values and develop skills that can guide them to become good decision makers, responsible for their personal health and well-being.

Life at the CrossRoads assists parents and guardians as they guide their young adults through the maze of dangers that face them today like HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections, teenage pregnancy, alcohol and other drug use, and ever-increasing youth violence.

Uniquely designed to foster communication and strengthen relationships between adolescents and adults, the lessons in Life at the CrossRoads motivate young people to become persons of character.

The lessons focus on imparting knowledge, fostering proper attitudes, and developing skills that help adolescents stand up against peer pressure and with confidence and tact.

Discussions regarding how to deal with failure, finding courage to move toward success, and planning for the future help young people look at life realistically yet with vision.
