WHAT PARENTS SAY
"Finally a program designed to enrich, educate, and empower my child. D’Vine Path’s program offers so many options and flexibility it truly meets the needs of my child and so many others. They empower my son to lead a full, independent, and productive life. It sincerely has the feel of a family away from home. I know this program is going to continue to grow and impact so many lives like it has for my family."

WHAT STUDENTS SAY
WHAT PARENTS SAY
I have been at D’Vine path for almost a year. It has been helping me make new friends and learning about plants, hospitality/viticulture and grapevines. Also learning about making friendships, doing resumes and job fairs/mock interviews.

WHAT STAFF MEMBERS SAY
"D’Vine Path has given me a continuing sense of self-worth and fulfillment by engaging with young adults who are incredibly talented and searching for a “fit” into everyday society and the “world of work.” Working side-by-side with these “students” while they are learning and working in the vineyard, designing Charcuterie cheese boards for local events/restaurants/wineries, growing vegetables, and creating Farmer’s Market items based on their newly acquired horticulture skills pairs well with their personal growth in communication skills, socialization, and teamwork. Moreover, D’Vine Path has allowed me to experience and participate in a successful program that promotes self-confidence, self-motivation, personal success, and confident workers ready to participate in their local communities. I am honored to be part of this program that promotes confident adults and fosters lasting friendships not only between students but between the staff and community."
