We Are Here To Help

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. This is what we do and what we strive for.
Our programs and opportunities are designed to empower youth and give them the chance to grow, engage, and excel and what they truly want to do in life. We want to empower minority youth to live beyond the scope of societal norms through exposure to broader experiences and education.

R.O.Y.A.L Summer Program

Out of all the programs Young Kings and Queens offers, the ROYAL Summer and OST program, which stands for Raising Our Youths Awareness about Life is the biggest part of our organization. During the Summer we offer a 10 week educational, action packed program that offers identity development, college and career exploration, life skills training and so much more. During the school year we offer tutoring and life skills training to enrich their overall learning experience.Through the ROYAL program we try to show the youth all the possibilities available to them and let them know they are not confined to one or two things when it comes to their future. 

Bridges Housing and Wealth Building Program

This program provides 18-24 months of affordable housing for youth ages 18-24. During the youths time in the Bridges House they will have weekly financial literacy classes and bi-weekly one-on-one wealth and success coaching to help better equip them with the skill they need to succeed once their time in the program house is finished. 

Heavy Hittas Boxing Club

This is a 6-10-week clinic we offer in the fall season for youth ages 13-19 interested. This program provides youth the opportunity to build confidence and manage their anger through the sport of boxing. This program also gives the youth the opportunity to train under local professionals to fight competitively or for their fitness leisure. They also have the opportunity to participate in our annul “Gloves Up Guns Down” showcase.
