This organization has been uniquely designed based on the principles of God’s unconditional love, compassion and concern for the youth and the desire to reconstitute the communities throughout DeKalb County. Founded by brothers Tiijon DaCosta Sr. and Diijon DaCosta and their cousin Dawit Willis, DKP was developed based off of the founders’ childhoods and mentoring they received by members of the community upon first moving to DeKalb County in 1989.

DKP thoroughly stresses the importance of education to each student and reaching their fullest potential. DKP utilizes the expertise of tutoring, extracurricular activities and mentoring to positively influence each child on an individual level. The organization firmly believes in providing each child with the necessary tools and skills to fulfill their passion, make their visions a reality and obtain physical, emotional and mental wellness with the assistance of parents, educators and community leaders.
