Destiny’s Daughters of Promise offers a leadership development program utilizing key components for preparation, success, intervention, exploration, and awareness for middle and high school girls. Our program is implemented to provide additional support and assistance to our local schools.
We provide a safe environment where teen girls can come and learn strategies to become confident leaders and contributing members of society.
DDP has grown tremendously in the number of girls we serve and in the innovation and reach of our programs. Demand continues to grow in our county and surrounding counties for our life-enhancing community service projects, group outings, field trips, mentoring and leadership workshop sessions. Our program is targeting middle and high school girls. We have joined forces with engaged parents, local schools, community leaders, businesses and corporations to help our teens graduate and become productive citizens. When we save a girl, we save a generation.
The three components of our program include:
- Leadership Development Sessions (Sessions held weekly in local schools)
- We have partnered with several schools in the Metro Atlanta area to provide life skills and leadership development training that will help girls develop into confident women through education, life skills training and career exploration opportunities.
- Teens participate in a one on one relationships that are emotionally supportive with adult women showing interest in the youth’s time and activities. The mentors also provide opportunities for the girls to learn and grow through experiences learned during monthly outings.
- Community Service
- There are a number of volunteer projects that the teens engage in throughout the school year. We teach civic responsibility so that teens take pride in their work and community.
