Destination Imagination Club
DI is a fun, hands-on, immersive way for kids to explore subjects ranging from STEM to fine arts and community service, run by parent volunteers on a global scale. DI embodies Common Core principles, while able to go beyond what's possible in a classroom. Teams tackle challenges and develop solutions together. Along the way, kids learn creative problem solving, team work, experimentation, and time and budget management, all while turning your recycling into amazing, never-before-imagined works of art/architecture. The process shifts kids’ focus from ‘me’ to ‘we’. It helps kids ask and answer questions like – How do I help my team succeed? Hear all voices? Accept when my idea won’t work? Build on my friends’ ideas? Learn to give up control and trust my team mates? DI teaches diplomacy, negotiation, prioritization, patience, and how to work together to thrive in a context in which there’s no pre-determined right answer or recipe for success.
