The Destinations Leadership Program is character and leadership development program to prepare and equip young people for life beyond what they know as they are embarking on their transition into adulthood. Youth and young adults through traveling abroad opportunities gain skills and life long experiences that give them a leg up in their desired professions and within their network circles. The ultimate goal of the program is to prepare them for higher education or a career.
The Destination Leadership program focuses travel on global issues of racial equity and intersectionality. Destination emerging leaders over 4-6 months learn how to become change agents by participating in activities that include leadership-building workshops, engaging in cultural exchange, expanding their vision of the world, meeting with dignitaries, participating in volunteerism, and learning history .
