After School Enrichment

About Us

D.E.S.T.I.N.E.D. to Succeed, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization born out of  a passion to enrich youths in Grades 5-8 residing in the Greater New Haven area in Connecticut.

D.E.S.T.I.N.E.D. stands for Desiring Every Student to Increase Necessary Educational Development.

Our Mission

  • to enrich the lives of young people and families through affordable, creative, quality program opportunities;
  • to increase proficiency in academic areas through extra-curricular activities; and
  • to engage families in their children’s education.

Our Vision

  • to provide families with a safe and nurturing place for your child to go after-school; and
  • to foster a partnership between schools, families, and community.

Our Programs

We offer many opportunities for students to improve academic performance through homework assistance and tutoring.  Enrichment activities will empower your young person to create habits that overcome educational and social struggles.

Participants are encouraged to enroll in various activities, including an entrepreneurs academy, youth leadership, and a Youth Advisory Council.

The success of a student ultimately depends on your family’s engagement.  We offer seminars and workshops to teach your family how to be an advocate for your child’s education.  We will aid your family in your relationships with your children’s schools and be a conduit for your family’s success.
