What We Do

Cross Training Center equips and empowers unemployed and under educated adults so they can gain employment and become financially independent. We specialize in helping those who have experienced challenging circumstances such as domestic abuse, human trafficking, incarceration, homelessness and generational poverty.

We provide vocational training and real hands-on work experience that can be listed on job applications. We train soft skills and workplace etiquette skills that are needed in the workplace. In this way, our clients are able to gain the skills they need to be competitive during the application process so they can gain employment. We believe that each person, no matter their past or their current challenges can be employed and set up for success.

Our students learn through real work experiences at Cross Electronic Recycling, Cross Automotive, Redeemed Computers & Electronics and Cross Social Hall. Each of these businesses provide valuable services to the community while providing work experience and vocational training for our students.

Interesting Info

We had over 400 graduates last year. That means they are now employed and financially independent.
We recycle over 300,000 pounds of electronics each year.
We believe any person who has experienced incarceration, homelessness, and victimization can become successful.
