The Destination Manhood Collective Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization in Morrow, Georgia. Established in 2017, we aim to provide young men and teenagers in Metro Atlanta with the tools and training necessary to become the leaders that every community needs. One of our main objectives is to reduce the impact of substance abuse and the stigma of mental health issues within our communities in a positive and nonjudgmental manner.
We provide our youth with a support system that will allow them to navigate and overcome negative stereotypes and real-life issues in a positive environment. Taking into consideration the factors and issues affecting our communities, we also provide referral services for vocational and career training options that could lead to endless opportunities and financial stability.
In addition, we offer counseling and mentorship to youth offenders. We advocate for those dealing with existing issues with Georgia’s Department of Juvenile Justice.
We help youthful offenders redirect their energy and encourage them to focus on becoming productive and responsible contributors to society as a whole. We plan to implement strategies to promote anti-violent and anti-criminal behavior through a wide variety of proven incentives.
In a nutshell, The Destination Manhood Collective Inc. is extremely active in community outreach, offering after-school programs, weekend events/outings, and other activities. Part of our outreach is visiting detainees in the custody of the state or local counties at detention or other transitional facilities.
