Ms. SiSi The Real InfoPreneur brings you, important people, to have important conversations on various topics and opportunities in our communities around the country. On this podcast, she speaks with Derek Carr about how people can earn revenue by helping people with their court-mandated classes.
With the dismal financial status of many teachers and lack of opportunities in the education sector, Derek Collins, CEO of the Diversion Center shows educators how to make $100,000 or more teaching court-mandated classes. Mr. Collins started his career as a substitute teacher and struggled to make ends meet after graduating with a Master’s Degree in Education. After some intense soul-searching, he had an “ah-ha” moment! Collins recalled having to take court-mandated classes after being caught selling bootleg DVDs and CDs. He remembered that he paid hundreds of dollars while in a pre-trial diversion program. He thought to himself, “If they can do it, I can do it too.”
Mr. Collins did some digging around and found out how to get certified teaching DUI and Defensive Driving classes. He worked for several DUI schools and then eventually started his own program called the Diversion Center. The Diversion Center helps probationers avoid jail time by providing them court-mandated classes instead of jail time. These classes include anger management, domestic violence, shoplifting prevention, values clarification, ASAM Level I Treatment and more.
Collins states: “Many teachers are unaware of this opportunity, and I easily make 6 figures a year teaching court-mandated classes. I am my own boss and make my own schedule. Being able to control my destiny and serve my community on my terms is fulfilling to me.”
The Diversion Center offers classes at five centers in the Atlanta Metro region, located at Marietta, Lawrenceville, Fayetteville, Duluth, and Jonesboro. Apart from correctional classes, the Center also engages in subjects like entrepreneurship, life and career coaching, and psychological techniques like motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral therapy.
