Words from Our Founder/CEO

All I Had Was My Dreams...It Was Just A Matter Of Time Before My Dreams Turned Into Reality!

Greetings! Welcome to our website.

It is an honor to lead D.E.S.T.I.N.E.D. to Succeed, Inc. We believe we are Greater New Haven’s provider of choice for middle and high school youth development programs. Our top priorities at D.E.S.T.I.N.E.D. to Succeed, Inc. are to deliver the best services possible to our participants. Our programs are focused on four pillars of excellence: Career Exploration, College Preparation, Leadership Development, and Life Skills.

The overall goal of the program is to empower our youth with the tools needed to become successful members of society with positive and healthy morals. D.E.S.T.I.N.E.D. to Succeed, Inc. offers an experience to participants that will improve positive self-esteem and work with each youth’s strengths and weaknesses.

We have an explicit interest in encouraging our participants to pursue educational excellence and confidently approach self-directed activity and visionary thinking. But we need your help, too. It is important that we build partnerships wherever possible to join our efforts and share resources to help even more youth and families.

After all, investing in our young people is a wise investment that pays unmatched dividends. It really does take a Village!

In the words of Booker T. Washington, "I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has had to overcome while trying to succeed." And succeed we shall!

Best regards,

 Yvonne E. Jones
