Young Kings and Queens is dedicated to the empowerment and inspiration of minority youth to live beyond the scopes of societal norms.


We believe actions speak louder than words and our youth require action. Be the person in a youth’s life that appreciates their voice and supports them using it.


We offer a variety of life skills development options, equitable education experiences and continuous supportive services to the youth of Kalamazoo to help empower them to do great things. We offer programs such as hair clinics, cooking classes, college tours, boxing for sport and fitness and much more.


Young Kings and Queens, Inc. empowers youth, ages 13-19, by providing them with space and experiences that helps them to hone in on their talents, define their aspirations and acquire new skills to create change in their own lives and in their communities.
