Who Are We & What We Do
Purpose Driven Sisters, a youth organization for young ladies was founded in 2018 by Ryann McNair. PDS is a Non-Profit organization (501c3) that caters to young ladies ages 8-17 years old in Milwaukee, WI. PDS's purpose is to create a safe space for young ladies to focus on positivity while building sisterly relationships through empowerment, encouragement, and education. The name Purpose Driven Sisters was created because Ryann believes life is about purpose and you should be driven to achieve the things you desire in life.
Purpose Driven Sisters offers weekly sessions discussion different subjects/topics such as self-esteem, self-worth, responsibilities, peer pressure, wisdom, team work, awareness about health & beauty, hygiene, exercise, fitness, financial literacy, life skills, accountability, setting short & long term goals, writing out visions, personal & spiritual growth with a twist of role playing & activities. Purpose Driven Sisters inspire the youth to always be thankful and give with a grateful heart. Purpose Driven Sisters also have monthly outings which we work hard to be apart of.
Our mission is to impact the lives of young ladies by showing love, confidence, respect, standards, ambition, friendliness & having self love. Through constant motivation, the youth are shown how strong & courageous they are. Purpose Driven Sisters emphasizes the demonstration of leadership, self-control, and obedience of the youth to allow their light to shine from within.
All girls worldwide are welcome to join us as we grow & glow living our best life on purpose.
Our purpose is to keep the girls' focus on positivity, empowerment and encouragement while building sisterly relationships using the Word of God.
Meet the Founder
Ryann McNair has been in the shoes of many of the young ladies that she mentors. She understands firsthand what it is to go through peer-pressure, low self esteem, wanting to be popular and growing up to fast without the right guidance. Since Ryann has the experience and has learned from her mistakes it tugged on her heart to be the mentor and role model she desired growing up. PDS's small beginning, started at home with her 2 daughters Angel and Lailah.
From just 2 girls, PDS over the years has touched the loves of over 200 young ladies. In the weekly Wednesday meeting there is an average attendance of 40 young ladies. The PDS mentor leaders purposely give their all to the young ladies they serve. PDS has a heart to serve.
The PDS Motto is when a young lady ages out she never truly leaves, she just pays it forward. The motto was formed because the PDS alumni want to stay connected. The PDS alumni know what the organization has done for them, so they give back by becoming PDS mentors.
The two scriptures that guide Ryann through this driven journey of loving, imparting and serving young women is:
For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.”
Philippians 4:13 NLT
“You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail.”
Proverbs 19:21 NLT
