PAY IT FORWARD
Jessica is a proud Daddy’s girl, and is eager to carry out his mission even though his time on Earth has passed.
Charles Cledor Toussaint was a provider by nature, and a great father who cared deeply for his family and loved them dearly. Toward the end of his life, Charles made peace and spread the word of God to everyone he knew, serving as an inspiration to his children.
Today, Charles’s mission and good faith lives on in many ways, including through his daughter Jessica.
Her initiative, called Petite Cledor,
aims to provide two individuals a year with the tools that they need to reach a goal.
"My dad was one of the most helpful and reliable people
I knew. He believed that people just need the right tools
to realize their dream and/or idea.
In his memory, I will choose two people each year to sow into their goals and aspirations."
Equipping youth and young adults, one young person at a time, with the tools, tips, and techniques to soar.
What happens to the young people who are alive but living without purpose, who don’t exactly know their way, and don’t have access to a guide?
When you’re in high school, you have guidance counselors, you have school psychologists, you have a lot of other programs. But once you finish college, it’s like, ‘What is it that I’m supposed to do?’
This is where Bridge to Promise comes in!
We provide comprehensive services that are easily accessible, but also, we ultimately help young adults search within themselves to find their unique purpose.
We provide community resources, point them in the right direction, and then become their cheerleaders, standing on the sidelines telling them that they can do this!
