We Have Strong Values

The mission of Destined Shades of Purpose, Inc. is to provide mentorship, support, activities and events for young girls as they become young women.

The purpose of this organization is to help girls and young teens learn the fundamentals of keeping God first in all that they do in life, improve their confidence, etiquette and leadership skills through our mentor leaders.

  • Conducting our Daily Walk in Confidence and Integrity.
  • Treating oneself and others with Respect and Honor.
  • Sharing Love and Compassion.
  • Embracing uniqueness and creativity.
  • Serving others in the Community where help is needed.


Destined Shades of Purpose started in May 2014’when Contessa Drayton had lunch with a few younger cousins in regards to personal issues that they were currently facing and while dealing with past mistakes. They expressed a need that they desired to form a group where young teens and young women could come together and discuss issues on building better confidence, positive self-esteem, anti-bullying support, peer pressure, and just having someone genuinely in place to care and listen.

Contessa could completely identify with these issues growing up in her grade school and facing many difficulties as a teenager. Contessa knew all that she faced in her past were lessons to help and aide this next generation with any obstacles that they may face in the world today, she has overcame by God’s grace and protection.

Destined Shades of Purpose is a place where young young girls, teens can come into a relaxed environment whether it is in a local community center, group workshop, or outreach etc.
