Watch and read what Destiny means and how Destiny impacts some of the members of our youth community.
Growing up in Destiny, I didn’t know how special it was to have a safe place where I was nurtured creatively and emotionally, and supported to make deep connections with peers from totally different economic, racial, and cultural backgrounds.”
When I got my first belt stripe, let me tell you: Spielberg – watch out! because at Destiny, not only did I find a practice that made me confident in my body, not only did I find a community of teachers and peers I wanted so badly to be just like, not only did I find a philosophy, a code, every word of which articulated just how I saw myself and world around around me.
Former Destiny Program Manager
Being involved with Destiny has shaped my childhood and my new adulthood in ways I am only now being able to realize. It has given me sisters and brothers and mentors and afforded me the opportunity to celebrate our differences and our similarities as a community.”
