Destino Leadership Academy- Miami, Florida

Register for the Destino Leadership Academy at Miami Dade College on Saturday, April 14th 



On Saturday, April 14th, Miami Dade College – North Campus, AARP, United Way and La Nueva Radio will host the one-day bilingual leadership academy, Destino: Seed for Change. Now in its eighth year, Destino will draw over 350 leaders from all walks of life with an interest in stepping up and doing more for themselves and their community.

Ivonne Fernandez for DestinoThe focus of Destino is to provide an introduction to practical tools, professional development, and learning opportunities through panels, interactive sessions, volunteering opportunities, and more.

Destino Leadership Academy has become a point of reference for the South Florida community and its growing leaders.

The innovative model of this one-day event first empowers the attendees through presentations, then creates interactive environments for leaders to learn from one another, and ends the day by providing leaders the opportunity to serve through hands-on community work.

In April, the “Seed for Change” empowering agenda will open with a Leadership plenary, followed by breakout sessions and a closing service activity for all participants.

Breakout sessions include:

  • Resources for High Level Education
  • Community Resources for Change
  • Planning your Financial Future
  • Google: Growing your online Business
  • Health and Wellness, Life in Television
  • Life in Radio, Caregiving: Prepare to Care
  • 9 Simple Steps to Write and Publish your own Book

Translation and Spanish workshops are available.

As an opportunity to serve, Destino has created an inspirational activity to engage participants in a mindful experience of giving back through the hands-on creation of “inspirational journals.”

Each journal will be customized to promote personal journaling practices and to encourage strength, hope, and resiliency among Miami-Dade County residents who are facing life shifts, transitions, or challenges.

Through partnerships with local community organizations, journal recipients may include older adults, new moms, dedicated fathers, shelter residents, teens nearing the aging-out of foster care, teens vulnerable to bullying, veterans, and more.

Last year’s Destino Alumni packed 50,000 meals for the most identified vulnerable community in Miami during the 2-hour closing session of the day.

Thanks to our sponsors, Destino is free to charge for all attendees, lunch and refreshments will be provided. For more information, please visit Destino and register here
