WHAT IS PROJECT DESTINED?
Project Destined is 501(c)3 non-profit that administers a real estate based applied youth education program designed to promote financial literacy, leadership development and access to mentorship opportunities yielding increased competitiveness of urban youth. Across multiple modules, Project Destined scholars gain exposure to all aspects of the real estate investment life cycle while gaining exposure to real industry professionals, analyzing real opportunities and helping to invest real capital into real estate within their own communities.
TRAIN. Train students in leadership and entrepreneurship through evaluation of “live” real estate investments in their local community
NETWORK. Create cultivated networking opportunities where students engage directly with local companies and executives. Project Destined seeks to secure ”sprint” internships for participants where students gain access to impactful two to three week exposure internships with some of the worlds best companies
PARTICIPATE. Turn participants into stakeholders in real estate, whereby they receive a portion of financial scholarships.
Access to Mentorship and Internships
In the Spring of 2017, Project Destined Scholars were part of the deal team that successfully acquired two (2) duplex properties in Detroit Michigan that are expected to generate over $30,000 in scholarship capital over the next five (5) years.
During Project Destined, I learned how to purchase properties and determine their use. In impoverished areas of Memphis there’s a great deal of blight. By using the skill of purchasing properties and determining their uses, I could buy abandoned buildings and houses in impoverished areas, and those could be turned into centers for education, business, and jobs. The best solutions to poverty is education and jobs.”
