Cultivating Change: One Life At A Time

Life Is About Choices

Destiny Reached Thru Empowerment offers life-skill classes to empower people to be the best they can be no matter what they are going through or have been through. No longer do you have to hold on to your history (your past) at the expense of your destiny (your future).

Our training empowers people to achieve both personal and professional goals. This collaborative approach to "cultivating change" is the keystone to finding your life purpose.

Our life-skill classes provide training to women, men, and young women who are at risk of being incarcerated, doing community service, recently released from jail or prison, or currently in the local, state, and federal system. DRTE will provide classes that includes enhancement of self-esteem, problem solving, employment strategies/techniques, and practical life-skills needed for self-sufficient living. We will help reconnect these women with their families and children if applicable. Parenting skills will be addressed in the classes sessions, as well as relationship building.

The program effectiveness and success will be measured by the reintegration of the target population into their local communities. Program participants will generate employment documents and role play interview techniques. They will also report back to DRTE every 2 weeks on the results of their job searches and practical life-skills applications. Self-esteem exercises will document improvement in this area. Another measure of success will be determined by the growth of family relationships. It is our goal to assist mothers in regaining custody of their children that are in the foster care system or living with relatives.

Destined for Greatness
Destined for Greatness is a mentoring and life-skills program dedicated to helping teens and young adults develop a deeper understanding of who they are while building strong positive relationships. We empower them to love who they are.

Our programs vary in length.  Some examples of topics that we will discuss include: finding your voice, love who you are, body language, media messages and respect. Because we will be discussing sensitive issues in a group setting, one of the most important ground rules is that everything that is said during Destined for Greatness stays here. It’s called the safety zone. Mentoring is about building relationships and we hope that Destined for Greatness mentees and mentors will develop a strong relationship with one another while helping mentees reach their full potential.”

Who you are is what makes you special. Do not change for anyone.

What lies ahead will always be a mystery. Do not be scared to explore.

When life pushes you over, you push back even harder.

Where there are choices to make, make the one you wont regret.

Why things happen will never be certain. Take it in stride and move forward.
