Previously a financial executive at JPMorgan Chase and Prudential Financial, Darin Pastor is currently the CEO of Capstone Affluent Strategies, a wealth management firm in California. Darin Pastor’s philanthropic interests include the Dream Center in Los Angeles, California.
The Dream Center operates the Dream Center Leadership School (DCLS), an organization with a mission to strengthen the individual talents and gifts of young people while nurturing their spiritual character. DCLS applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 25 and should be available full time throughout the course of the program.
A typical day of a DCLS student includes Bible study, prayer, and worship. The schedule also includes classes such as core values, in which students are taught the Bible from a Hebraic point of view to inspire them to learn Biblical culture; devotionals, in which students get a chance to inspire one another with positive messages; and Adopt-a-Block, in which students have the opportunity to touch the lives of those around them by distributing food and hygiene products to people who are underprivileged.
