Our Programs

Description:

In a world filled with media, social pressures, and influences, some of our youth have lost their way to gangs, drugs and crime. The Ernest Daurham Jr. Legacy Foundation’s humanitarian efforts are on a mission to Save Our Sons (S.O.S).

 

Save Our Sons (S.O.S) is a global movement that provides every young Son of God the opportunity to rise above his/her potential. Save our Sons has transitioned into a program that includes both Men and Women interested in a specialized trade.

 

The Foundation provides scholarships for individuals enrolled in a specialized trade program to assist them on their journey to financial independence. Mr. Daurham passionately believed that the beauty industry strengthened, connected, and united the black community with resources for individuals and businesses. This involved cultural empowerment, ethical and moral values, education, technological evolution, and distribution of goods and services uniting under one common goal, Entrepreneurship.

This also helps to increase their self-value, self-esteem, self-confidence, self-awareness, and abundance through education which will impact them on individual, communal, and global levels. Our youth achieving success in life must become our mutual responsibility.

 

W.B Yeats once said, “The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.” The Ernest Daurham Jr. Legacy Foundation is truly dedicated to kindling the fires necessary to assist and motivate our youth so that they become Inspired, Talented and Motivated Leaders of tomorrow.

Description:

In a world filled with pressures and uncertainties, being a father is the hardest job on the planet. So many good parents are unnoticed and their efforts and sacrifices are never known. The Ernest Daurham Jr. Legacy Foundation’s humanitarian efforts are on a mission to honor Fantastic Fathers with the Love of a Father award.

The Love of a Father Award was created by Ernest Daurham Jr.'s children. Our father was a present and very active parent who brought love and value to all seven of his children's lives. His purpose in being the strength and pillar of light in our family was well lit and will continue to light the path of his descendants for generations to come. 

To show our appreciation and to acknowledge him for staying, we dedicate this annual Love of a Father Gala to our father, Mr. Ernest Daurham Jr., and all fathers who decided to stay in their children's lives and raise them.
