Destiny Outreach® (DO!) helps young people discover themselves,
find purpose and accept personal responsibility for their choices
and lifelong learning.
Destiny Outreach® believes that personal dreams (envisioning how
one desires to impact the world through a special talent, gift
or skill) are intricately linked to personal purpose (one's sense
of meaning and significance). DO! asserts that this sense
of purpose provides the organizing framework and personal motivation
for the challenges of academic learning and personal development.
Moreover, Destiny Outreach® believes that young people’s clarity
about the self-discovery process helps them further refine their
sense of purpose. By using the students' unique dreams as
a source of motivation, teachers, and parents can also better fulfill
their roles as formal and informal educators (Facilitators of meaning) and provide invaluable support as young
people integrate their personal goals with their formal educational
