Daughters with a Destiny

Our mission is to transform the lives of at-risk teen girls and prepare them for promising futures through education and jobs. Our goal is to increase college attendance among those who, based on several risk factors, are less likely to succeed academically.

We offer workshops and programs that encourage girls to think bigger, dream higher and be the best that they can be—women of character who are motivated to lead both personally and professionally.

Personal Development Workshop

The Personal Development Workshop is designed to build girl's self-esteem and capacity for college preparedness, and prepares them for responsible adulthood, economic independence and civic-mindedness. The program meets girls where they are, acknowledging the reality and pressures facing so many of today’s girls.

Youth Workforce Development Program

 Taught by our team of education, human resources and image professionals, this program provides teen girls with work-readiness and leadership skills, along with the educational enhancement to land a job, keep a job, and advance in their careers.

College and Career Readiness Program

In support of our mission to empower girls to achieve their goals and dreams, we are committed to equipping our girls with the knowledge, resources, and tools they need to define and successfully navigate their academic path. Programming includes college preparation events and campus visits at local colleges and universities; opportunities for girls to explore careers through job shadowing, networking events with corporate partners, and mentoring; extensive support for girls as they navigate job, college, and scholarship applications with the opportunity to be paired with a volunteer College and Career Coach; and academic success planning and career development.
