What is DETERMINED TO EDUCATE in a nutshell?

We mentor, we educate and create opportunities which allow our students to build confidence within themselves. We motivate them to excel through partnerships and through our Amazing programs. Such as our Journal Project where we are partnering youngsters with senior citizens, knitting them together so that wisdom and technology information can be exchanged, while preserving legacies and increasing literacy by storytelling and joint reading projects. Our "Speaker Series" Program brings prominent figures and professionals to the schools we work with sharing the life stories of individuals and how they became so successful which includes challenges that were ever faced. "The Exposure Tour" where we take students on trips to different sites in the business world, giving the students the opportunity to be in a different environment. This assures them that there are wider ranges of opportunities for them to grab onto. We have also created a "Job Opportunities" program which has landed over 100 students in jobs with companies such as Rite Aid, Walgreens, TD Bank, Eurest at American Express, CBRE at American Express and BJ's Wholesale. We were also able to collect over 400 suits and dresses (which were donated by high level executives from Fortune 100/500 companies) for students to use on interviews. Determined To Educate, Inc. serves over 1000 students a year. Some say we do so much; but we like to keep our programs attractive for our young people as we strive to pull out the magic in them through every way we can. We thank you all for helping us to continue to build them. We have "NO DOUBTS" in our mind that your continued support will allow us to reach so many more students.

We thank you for giving chances! Make 2016 your year of NO DOUBTS! Don't forget to hashtag the following - #nodoubts, #determinedtoeducate, #dte, #dte2016

DONATE TO DETERMINED TO EDUCATE, INC. FOR OUR PROGRAM "I AM DETERMINED - THE CHOICE IS MINE" CAMPAIGN (Donate button below)


"I Am Determined, The Choice is Mine". "I am Determined, The Choice is Mine" is a campaign that we believe will bring positive awareness, not only to the children, but also to the parents and even adults who don't have children. We are losing our future and we need to fight to save it. It takes all of us to take a stand and help our children. We have to let them know that they have a choice, a better choice to make. We all need to be 'Determined' in order to succeed.

DONATE TO DETERMINED TO EDUCATE, INC. FOR OUR PROGRAM "THE JOURNAL PROJECT - OUR STORIES"(Donate button below)


Beginning in mid October of 2009, we piloted a program called "The Journal Project-Our Stories". We took at risk teens from Christopher Columbus High School in the Bronx and teamed them up with Senior Citizens at the Pelham Parkway Nursing Home in the Bronx. The objective to this program is to preserve a generation of our history and to help increase interest in literacy by storytelling (and re-telling) of relevant topics told through relevant mechanism. We will pass along "our stories" through this intergenerational project. The benefits that participants will have are to show how "times have changed" and yet how times have "remained the same" through the eyes of our elders. Also, to have these stories captured by appropriate peer groups to re-tell to their peers, thereby completing the circle of literacy (story telling and then re-telling). In the beginning the teens seemed to not show interest. A few weeks after the program they began to see the sensitive side and learned more than they expected from the seniors that were visited and even the seniors in their neighborhood. With your help, we are hoping to begin this program in many more schools starting in NYC.
