Theory of Change

Theory of Change

Over the past 30 years, Destiny Arts Center has emerged as a model for youth development grounded in our arts education and peace-building philosophy and driven by a desire for safe and loving communities. We continue to enrich our current programs by identifying the underlying methods and frameworks for our practice and by aligning them with educational best practices in arts-integration and critical pedagogy. This process informs our teaching artist trainings, which are structured to emphasize mentorship between lead instructors and newly hired instructors. Additionally, from this methodology we create professional development training materials for arts educators, classroom teachers, and school administrators.

We Believe

That when we are successful, young people live meaningful, connected, creative lives and become advocates for an inclusive society. They value themselves and others, respond rather than react to situations, and practice peace and love over violence.

We Value

The principles of love, respect, care, responsibility, honor, and peace as embodied in Destiny’s Warrior’s Code.

Building and sustaining a diverse and inclusive community.

Being able to provide services to youth regardless of their families’ ability to pay.
