Meet the Founder

"For a very long time, I’ve been passionate about working with our youth. Especially and specifically, at-risk youth and young adults. I grew up in a small town, just outside of Mobile, Alabama. My neighborhood was filled with at-risk youth, young adults and their families. I was heartbroken by the alarming rate of teens and pre-teens, during that time, that was getting arrested and going to jail or the juvenile detention center for petty crimes and some, much more serious crimes. Quite a few of them were my closest friends. Looking back on it, a lot of my peers did things that landed them in a lot of trouble because they had way too much time on their hands

They just didn’t have anything to do to occupy their time after school, on the weekends and during the summer breaks. There really weren’t a lot of programs around at that time for our youth. 4 My Destiny Community Arts Center Inc was birthed out of my strong desire to do something radical to make an impact and a difference in the lives of our youth, young adults and their families in the community and surrounding areas of metropolitan Atlanta. It warms my heart because this is my passion and my purpose. Empowering and Impacting the lives of our future leaders, one step and one day at a time”.

Meet C.Michelle Jones-Harrison of 4 My Destiny Community Arts Center Inc in SW Atlanta

Our Purpose is to reach At-risk, Underserved youth & young adults through Performing Arts, providing them opportunities to Entertain, Inspire, Promote Positive Change, Educate, Engage and Lead in the area of the Arts. To introduce future generations to Live Theatre, Music and Art. We plan to bridge the gap between our communities. This is a Community based effort. Studies show that in our more underserved communities, there is a great lack of community support for schools, a high rate of criminal activity, school dropouts, little or no parental involvement or expectations, drug & alcohol abuse, mental health issues, a high rate of single-parent homes, poverty, teenage pregnancy and dysfunctional home life.

Meet C.Michelle Jones-Harrison: Founder, President & CEO

Other than deciding to work for myself, The single most important decision I made that contributed to my success was getting up every morning and praying first, Giving thanks and gratitude to God, making daily affirmations, thinking & speaking positive and deciding that nothing would keep me from fulfilling my dreams. I’d also create daily & weekly goals and accomplish them. I’d work hard and keep moving forward even in the midst of many obstacles or challenges. I’ve come too far to give up now. Therefore, I have to be consistent, persistent and persevere. I refuse to allow anything to hold me back. If I don’t finish the race, I’d never know whether or not I would have made it to the finish line successfully. Therefore, I KEEP GOING.
