Destined 2 WIN Youth Outreach & Mentor Program

Girls group mentoring programs celebrate individuality while providing safe spaces for girls and women to connect and share their voices and common experiences. When girls are given tools, space, and encouragement, they are empowered to develop their voices in their communities. Our mentoring programs create a supportive environment where girls can make connections that foster their strengths and support them through challenges.  D2W also teaches our girls to serve within their community and give back to those less fortunate.  We have guest speakers, business owners, and more to have a creative atmosphere where they can grow and tap into their future potential.  Here are a few things additional things will we offer.  Our goal is to be a place where when they go out into the world they have been offered the tools necessary to be successful. 

 

- Business Set-Up

-How to fill out a Resume

- How to Interview for a Job

- How to research information on college scholarships and school choices

- LifeStyles (Personal Hygiene, Cooking, Bank Statement, etc)

- How to change a tire (yes) a tire

- Financial Literacy and Investments

-How and what does it takes to purchase a home

and so much more.   

Deanna Smith is the Director of Destined 2 WIN and looks to ensure that every girl who walks into the program is impacted to direct them towards their purpose in life.  Smith was born and raised in Texas with aspirations of being an engineer who helped children with disabilities be more comfortable in the world around them.  Through life's twists and turns, she entered corporate America, but her passion for impacting the lives of youth still burned strong.  Today, she has more than 25 years of experience in corporate American, is now working in accounting, and assists with various start-up businesses.  Deanna is a person who influences and champions being happy with yourself, and the talents and gifts are given to you.   Being a dreamer is not a bad thing, "Smith" says, and with the right influence, guidance, and tools, every girl's dream can become a reality.

Toast Master for Youth

All teens can benefit from what Toastmasters teaches. Young people will need communication skills to deliver classroom presentations, interview for jobs, speak up in the workplace, and attentively listen to others. Once they’re out in the larger world, they’ll need interpersonal skills to navigate sticky situations that will inevitably arise with colleagues or friends.

Community Service

Performing community service has been shown to offer a number of benefits for young people before, during, and even after their high school years. The benefits of volunteering can have a holistic effect on students’ lives—professionally, educationally, and personally.    

Activities & Crafts

Friends at Art Store

Arts and craft activities help instill a sense of achievement and pride, boosting their self-confidence. The opportunity to create whatever a child desire helps foster creativity. A child will learn to make correct and effective decisions by facing and solving artistic challenges.

Financial Literacy

Every person who understands how to manage their finances and build their wealth improves not only their futures but those of their families and communities. We believe that education should be fun so that students are more motivated to learn.
