2019 Additional Recommendation Submission

Dear Recommender,


Greetings from Brookline, Massachusetts! As the teens in our communities approach the beginning of young adult life, they are developing questions about themselves, the world around them, and their future occupations. The CrossRoad Summer Institute, now in its sixteenth year and offering three sessions, welcomes ninety-six high school juniors and seniors to participate in a ten-day faith-based vocation exploration program developed to help them wrestle with these big questions. The curriculum approaches these questions from an Orthodox Christian perspective, and offers the space and resources for students to discover their natural gifts and talents in order to use them in service to their church and to society.


The dates for the 2019 CrossRoad Summer Institute are June 15-25 (Session 1), July 2-12 (Session 2), and July 23-August 2 (Session 3). Sessions 1 and 2 will be held on the campus of Hellenic College Holy Cross School of Theology in Brookline, MA, and Session 3 will be held at North Park University in Chicago, IL.

For ten days participants will:

• Grow in their faith

• Explore their strengths

• Engage in serving others

• Discover how their gifts and talents can serve the needs of the Church and society


In selecting CrossRoad participants, our committee depends on recommendations of the applicants supplied by persons who know them well. We are eager to select those individuals whose interests indicate that they have the greatest potential to benefit from this program. Please provide a frank and thoughtful appraisal of the applicant. We greatly appreciate the time you devote to this evaluation.
