This is why we do what we do at Destination Imagination! Here are 6 essential skills students learn through Destination Imagination that will prepare them for success in school, their career, and life.

We are at a unique place in time where the new digital economy is opening unprecedented opportunities for students. Transformation in education and business is challenging the way we think and how we should respond to the future. Once again, the pioneers and groundbreakers will lead the way. Destination Imagination seeks to ensure that students receive the soft-skills training and business acumen to challenge conventional processes. The ability to design the future and to imagine new ways of combining old with new will be a game-changing skill for these students. Diversity and multi-cultural perspectives are important objectives for our organization and our efforts this year will seek to make inroads into new student populations.
