Project Based Model
We deliver our programming through the model: TRAIN, COMPETE, GROW. Students work with leading executives to evaluate live deals in their community and present them in a pitch competition. Scholars emerge with the skills, confidence, experiences and networks that prepare them to secure a strong first job.
Project Destined works with local corporate partners to provide over 40 hours of blended (e-learning + in-person) training to scholars.
Scholars analyze live real estate deals in their community and present the opportunities in a "Shark Tank" style pitch competition with cash prizes
Scholars participate in mock interviews, corporate tours and networking sessions with industry leaders across their city
We are passionate about improving financial health and creating owners in underserved communities. Here's the progress that we have made since we started working in 2016.

PD gave me the knowledge and confidence to pursue a career in real estate development and acquisitions, so much so that I’ll be starting a full time role at a real estate investment firm in the Fall! Now I feel empowered to have an actual equity stake in my community!
New York / Spring 2019
Knowledge - Access - Confidence. PD equipped me with both technical knowledge and provided a platform to build relationships with industry professionals. But above all, allowed me to see that I’m just as smart as them...and can start changing my community block by block!
New York / Spring 2019
PD was an AMAZING opportunity that pushed me out of my comfort zone. It encouraged me to confront self-limiting beliefs and I now have the confidence needed to get out there, ask questions, create change, and challenge the status quo.
