President's Message

Jonnitta Haimes

As a mother of four children, I understand that society has placed certain barriers, that make it more challenging for our babies to find their way in this world. I remember having a mentor throughout my youth. They helped correct destructive behaviour, and they provided a safe place for me to express myself and my dreams. I am who am today because I had someone who cared for me, who corrected me, who supported me.

I believe every child deserves this type of relationship as well.

Through DUTY I hope to make a difference in the lives of all children. To empower  children to succeed by providing dynamic, holistic programs that integrate academics, enrichment and self-esteem. These programs help to eliminate the barriers of poverty, single-parent homes, generational dysfunction and peer pressure among young our youth.

We are committed to mentoring 1 million American Youth by 2030. 

Will you help us reach our goal?
