Many of our youth are victims of their environments and life circumstances, while others are being misguided by main stream society and television. They are often pressured to become someone they are not or they are being forced to “fit” with the “in crowd” in fear of not being accepted. Our youth are losing their sense of pride and self-respect. They do not understand just how precious, valuable, and important their lives truly are. Our goal at K.Y.P is to help our youth discover and understand their self-worth and value. We encourage them to be themselves and to realize it is okay to be different. We want them to know they are destined for greatness and can achieve anything they set their minds and hearts too.
Young Ladies of Divine Purpose (Y.L.D.P) is our mentoring program for young ladies between the ages of 13 – 23. Y.L.D.P was created to uplift and provide support to our young women as they develop in different stages of life. Our young ladies will participate in events, workshops, community service, and educational trips/outings. We will focus on self-esteem building, etiquette, college/career planning, aid in purpose discovery and building on their strengths. Most importantly they will develop a lifelong bond of sisterhood, learning to uplift and encourage each other towards success.
Men With Purpose (M.W.P) is our mentoring program for young men. Our young men will be partnered with positive role models that will help teach and guide them into manhood. Our program is geared towards grooming our young men to be our future leaders and pillars of the community. The gentlemen will participate in events, community service, workshops, educational trips/outings, and college/career planning. These activities are designed to aid them in discovering their life’s purpose. Most importantly they will have a strong bond of brotherhood, helping to uplift and encourage each other towards success.
