Review for Destiny Arts Center, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had the privilege of working for Destiny Arts in 2011-2012. I taught capoeira for them, in their out reach programs in Oakland. I'm also a former elementary school teacher of five years, and from my teaching experience, I was really blown away by the level of attention that they gave their teaching staff. From the non violence education, the structure of the way meetings were held, the acknowledgement and intentional creation of community, and respect and professionalism given to teaching artists, I have nothing but the utmost respect of what this organization does. And to see first hand the impact that these art programs have on youth in the bay area is not only impressive, but inspiring. Thank you Destiny Arts for being what you are.
