New Crossroads Initiatives for 2013-2014
With the help of additional donors and volunteers, the Crossroads Board and staff is determined to expand and extend our mission in the following ways:
1) Redesign our website to make it more attractive, especially to a youthful audience, and make it much easier to navigate. Our goal is to make the Crossroads Initiative the premier Catholic site for spiritual growth in the world. Through Search Engine Optimization, we'll work to make it more likely that people seeking spiritual truth on the web will get a Catholic perspective on faith questions rather than a sectarian one. (project to be completed by July 2014)
2) Produce many new audio podcasts some of which will be broadcast via Catholic radio, all of which will be made available via the web and the smart phone application. (pilot produced in 2013 -- on the air by January 2014)
3) Greater use of Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, iTunes and other social media and integration of our website with these media.
4) Send Dr. D’Ambrosio and youth speakers to Catholic High schools and youth groups in Texas and around the nation. Here's a review of our pilot high school talk by a student named Marcos: "that was easily one of the best talks I’ve ever heard. My friend and I couldn't stop talking about you for the rest of the day. . . . I hope that this was the first of many!”
5) Fund the salary of recently hired, full-time executive director to stimulate and coordinate our growth, especially in reaching three special target audiences: 1) youth (teens and young adults); 2) Catholic men; 3) religious educators, including parents.
