We know that many young people, including your child, are talented, intelligent, and gifted. All too often, we see that bright and gifted young adults will experience great struggles upon entering the "real world." This struggle is the primary reason that ATC developed many types of vocational training programs for young adults – Including vocational training for students with disabilities.
This type of training works because “smart” and “gifted” doesn’t always equate to success in the real world. Also, personal money management training is part of ATC’s curriculum. We have found that when a young adult is confident with their understanding of banking, budgeting, and saving coupled with proper financial habits, they will make tremendous strides in their journey toward independence.
At The Crossroads is a residential transitional living service for young adults between the ages of 18 and 26. The program is designed to provide able young adults with the support they need to become knowledge and self-sufficient. Through a therapy, hands-on experience, educational assistance, employment opportunities, relationship repair, and healthy living, ATC gives young men and women the tools necessary to succeed. Our goal is to help young people navigate out of the teenage years and into a world of accountability and responsibility.
ATC provides vocational training and occupational skills training for virtually any young adult between 18 and 26 years of age. We know that job searching and resume building can be intimidating and challenging for those with little experience in these fields. This understanding of struggling young men is what sets ATC apart from all other young adult transitional living programs. At The Crossroads provides several types of vocational training, expert resume building, occupational preparation, and imparts expert job searching techniques. ATC also provides aid to students with various learning and intellectual disabilities.
Center for Independent Living for Young Adults
The beautiful Southern Utah area, where ATC is located, offers a wide variety of educational opportunities for our interns and students. The educational pursuit is a major part of the “winning edge” here at ATC. We see the pursuit of educational achievement as the groundwork for the long-term success of our students. For this reason, while enrolled with At The Crossroads, all interns are encouraged, coached, and supported when pursuing their educational goals. While here with us, your loved one can complete their GED. As the student pursues their college prep work, they will also be developing proper study habits that they can take with them all the way through their lives.
Here At The Crossroads, we have learned that one of the greatest skills that our students can learn is personal money management. One of the services that we provide here at ATC is credit building for young adults. Although different philosophies exist about building good credit, we believe that it’s better to have it and not need it, then to need it and not have it. Our staff members help the students understand banking, checking, and savings accounts. The students also take part in creating a personal budget, and appreciating the value of saving money. In the end, they will acquire personal money management skills that will benefit them for a lifetime.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) - As the primary agency responsible for health protection in the US, the CDC plays an enormous role in dealing with and protecting US citizens from a wide variety of health threats. These include common problems such as obesity, smoking and tobacco use, STDs, ADHD and a host of others, as well as more exotic threats when they become national or local issues. The agency does this by conducting scientific research, providing health education and acting as needed when health threats arrive. It also promotes and sponsors research to help identify and eliminate these risks.
