About Project Destined

To date, Project Destined has partnered with 100+ leading real estate firms and 70+ universities around the country to provide diverse students with internship opportunities to explore ownership through live real estate deals.

Project Destined is a nationwide, social impact platform that has deep experience in teaching underserved youth the fundamentals of commercial real estate. We deliver our programming through the model: TRAIN, COMPETE, GROW. Students work with leading executives to evaluate live deals in their community and present them in a pitch competition. Scholars emerge with the skills, confidence, experiences, and networks that prepare them to secure a strong first job.

“This internship has been a true eye-opener for me. I appreciate PD for all it has done. I knew I had an interest in CRE but didn't understand what sector of it I wanted to dive into. However, through PD, I have been able to work with professionals in the industry in ALL sectors of CRE. The professionals are always more than happy to help and answer any questions. This is THE BEST program if you are genuinely interested in CRE! I 1000% recommend applying! ”

“I liked that Project Destined feels like a place where I belonged. It is not only very inclusive but also diverse. They make sure to present you with numerous opportunities in the different sectors of real estate. You are never alone when it comes to asking for help, there is always going to be someone there to help you with any question you might have. If that person does not know the answer they will go to tremendous lengths to make sure you get connected with the right people. Lastly, many industry professionals give amazing insight into their careers and the sector of real estate that they work in.”
