Creating A Respectful Environment in Schools

A program of Crossroads Youth Center

USA National Miss partners with the Crown CARES (Creating a Respectful Environment in Schools), as their official platform. The Crown CARES is a program of Crossroads Youth Center a 501c3 youth organization that operates exclusively for charitable and educational purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 as set forth in the Articles of Incorporation. 

The Crown CARES is specifically designed for pageant systems who wish to promote awareness as a platform on the epidemic of bullying in schools, to cultivate a safe environment through character education and most importantly teach skills to develop social responsibility in school-age children, youth and teens.  

Modeled after the Unite Against Bullying ME Project, the Crown CARES provides a comprehensive program which includes a how-to manual, and educational literature to the participants. This program provides the general knowledge, research, resources and practical advice necessary to incorporate steps and measures to effectively promote awareness of bullying prevention and character education, while fostering safe school environment.

USA National Miss Scholarship Pageant and Crossroads Crown CARES share a commitment to raise awareness and funds for Crossroads and UNM's Scholarship Program. This partnership creates the following opportunities for delegates and national titleholders:

  • USA National Miss and local, state, and national titleholders act as a goodwill ambassador and peer ambassadors for the Crown CARES throughout their year of service.

  • UNM delegates, at all levels, raise money and awareness for Crossroads Crown CARES and the USA National Miss Scholarship Program.
