Destiny’s Daughters of Promise is a non-profit mentor and leadership program for teen girls. The program strives to build self esteem and leadership skills through participation in one-on-one mentoring and weekly training sessions and activities. Workshops are designed to strengthen the fundamental need for young women to commit to a process of self-improvement. The organization’s long-term goal is for participants to achieve an independent and healthy adulthood as determined by society’s achievement profiles. Needs the program addresses include: health risk behaviors, victimization, underachievement, and lack of career goals, lack of leadership skills, low self-esteem and lack of social skills.
Parent Kim Trejo said, “I love that KarLeigh is able to be a part of this group! I feel that she is learning a lot from Mrs. Simons. She is a great lady and a wonderful role model for my daughter! I think you guys have touched KarLeigh in a good way! She is so excited when Tuesday comes around!” Mrs. Simons is one of several teachers from Acworth Intermediate actively involved in the program. The needs that the program addresses include: health risk behaviors, victimization, achievement, career goals and planning, leadership skills, self-esteem, and developing social skills.
