Words from Our CEO
It Takes A Village
I was raised in New Haven, CT by two loving parents and the “village” community of the Albie Booth Memorial Boys Club (now known as New Haven Boys & Girls Club). The mentors at Albie Booth helped to shape the person I have become today. They kindled my passion to make an impact on the lives of our young people. D.E.S.T.I.N.E.D. to Succeed is my way of giving back to the community that continues to nurture me and my family.
When youths are left to make choices, without proper guidance, they typically make poor ones. With the help of DTS, your 5th-8th grader will be provided with the tools necessary to succeed. They’ll learn how to make positive choices, gain cultural and social enrichment, and create a plan to make their dreams a reality.
It really does take a village to raise a child, and DTS would like to be your village. Come join us!
