Daytona Beach nonprofit, CareerSource team to teach kids life skills

DAYTONA BEACH — Dyrell Johnson says teens today don’t have the same opportunities as he did growing up, so he launched a program dedicated to teaching teens life skills to help them succeed after high school graduation.

“The inspiration behind the program came from my life experiences, growing up as a teenager in my community and seeing the many opportunities that were present for teenagers back then,” said 29-year-old-Johnson, director of the Community Healing Project. “And now in this era, it seems like those opportunities are fading fast. I had to do something about it. I didn’t want to just accept things as they are.”

Community Healing Project, a Daytona Beach nonprofit, launched “Project GOLD” last year and is partnering with CareerSource Flagler Volusia, which works to place people in jobs.
