Sons and Daughters of Destiny and Purpose was born from the burning desire of a woman, Perl Blake, who wanted to take a "strong message" of hope, abstinence as a choice to a group of teens: "young women." Because of her faith in the bible, and the need for young women to be able to apply the messages, she and her sister in law piloted the first program. Beginning by using the A.C. Green Game Plan, later added The Navigator, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens and The Respect Programs- What do you Stand for, to "reach and teach" precious young girls, empowering them with the effective tools needed to forge self-esteem, develop positive attitudes, and set career goals by utilizing an alternative perspective regarding sexuality- abstain until marriage. Since the initial program in 2002 with a small number of girls participating, the program has grown over the years, incorporating character development and now has 11 dedicated facilitators and volunteers and 35 plus girls each year.
The Sons of Destiny and Purpose started as just a desire and thought some years ago, a vision of Pastor Hardie Blake and Cleo Washington. The vision was to reach out to young African American males with the intent of helping prepare them to become productive men in our society through teaching respect, responsibility, encouraging higher education, help build and strengthen character that will allow for success. In 2010, this vision became a reality, the first year for sons of Destiny and Purpose- Dare to be King. The program has dedicated, caring, committed men who facilitate and mentor the young men who become a part of this program, using several curriculums that promote character building, respect, accountability, choosing abstinence and social responsibility. Mission: To teach, train, encourage, love and support young men, women from all walks of life, with the intent of having an influence in their lives that will promote and encourage social responsibility spiritual transformation.
