23 years ago, Destiny Arts Center’s founders had a dream: to create a place where young people could learn to prevent violence in their lives. And to end the isolation and prejudice that so often leads to that violence.
We accomplish this mission by:
Our students tell us that Destiny makes a difference in their lives: 75% participate more positively in their academic lives and extracurricular activities.
60% of Project Destiny students and 90% of on-site students use the tools we teach them to resolve conflict without resorting to violence.
These young people create a ripple effect in their schools, homes, and community, spreading the love, respect, care, responsibility, honor, and peace of the Destiny Warrior’s Code as they move through their lives.
Destiny Arts Center gives youth more than something to do. More than a place to go.
Destiny gives youth a way to be.
