Our participants arrived excited and ready to “take the challenge” of CrossRoad! They come from 17 states across the US – from California to Pennsylvania, Minnesota to Texas.
While half of our staff greeted participants at O’Hare Airport the other half of the team stayed on campus to assist the participants with getting settled in the dorm, taking tours of campus, and getting to know each other. We celebrated Vespers and then after dinner began icebreaker activities. With lots of laughter, the group started to get to know each other!
Following icebreakers we learned more about one another’s strengths using the StrengthsFinder inventory that each participant took prior to coming to CrossRoad. The participants broke down into smaller groups to discuss the results of the StrengthsFinder activity and how they might develop these strengths in their daily lives.
