Helping troubled and at-risk youth, the formerly incarcerated, and the community at large.
Through our mentorship program, we offer a variety of classes, which are curriculum-based and cover a variety of subject matters: ReDiscovering You, Building Healthier Relationships, Critical Change Gang Prevention Program, and many more.
Volunteers are the backbone of our organization. We offer a variety of opportunities for individuals and groups to get involved and make a difference in the lives of those we serve. Whether you are serving the youth in the community, at the Center, or working the neighborhoods searching for the needs of the people.
Destiny of H.O.P.E., Inc. and P.E.A.C.E., will be hosting Columbia’s Community “Oasis” Book Club. Reading is a fundamental principle of growth. Just like the muscles in your arms, legs, and back, your brain too must receive its exercise. Special thanks are due to the Boone Electric Community Trust as a sponsor of the Oasis Book Club, who too understand the great benefits of reading and expanding the the mind. We believe that our book club will enable our young scholars and mentees to learn from the freedoms and imprisonments of the world, which will lead them to a deeper understanding of people through their conversations, and providing opportunities to safely fail acelebrate success.
One of our partner organizations, SEED Success will be offering incentives for youth who sign up for the Oasis Book Club, for the completion of books, and more. For further information visit: http://www.seedsuccess.org
Research shows that regular reading:
We will be seeking to elevate the minds of our youth through reading various books of substance and discussing them in our bi-weekly “Reader’s Circle.” Reading can even relax your body by lowering your heart rate and easing the tension in your muscles. A 2009 study at the University of Sussex found that reading can reduce stress by up to 68%.”
Reading is Fundamental! Parents, please join in our mission to educate our youth. We’ll see you there!! http://www.seedsuccess.org/
