Destination Destiny is a Chicago based 501(c)3 started in 2006 with a mission to help youth process their life experiences. We serve schools, churches, para-churches and community youth organizations of all demographics in the rural, suburban and urban communities across the United States. As a Kingdom-minded ministry, we believe what is happening everywhere is more important that what is happening in any single organization.
Our years of experience as youth leaders, business professionals, parents and teachers drives our dedication to building a community of supportive adults all focused on inspiring youth to engage, discern and make conscious choices as they walk out their DESTINY.
Over the years Destination Destiny has identified that young people need guidance not only academically but also socially in dealing with the effects peer pressure. Helping youth become all they can be in the midst of their daily circumstances. Youth are successful when those around them successfully point them in the right direction. Youth will only know how to live victorious lives when adults assist them in seeing that their present has meaning and they are able to create a vision and purpose that operates as their north star.
Destination Destiny was founded on three mandates. The first mandate arises from Matthew 28, which commands us to live lives of integrity, honor and character. The second mandate comes from Galatians, which teaches that adults are the gatekeepers of our youth through their transitional states. The third mandate is grounded in the teachings of Mark 10:35-45, which states we are to work towards the best interest of others.
Destination Destiny provides leadership training, information, workshops and services to help youth and leaders who help youth grow in their faith.
