Rising Queens Girls Empowerment Group is our K-8 program. This program follows a social- emotional curriculum. This program offers mentors from our Queens Ignite program.
In this program girls will learn life skills that will equip them with the necessary tools to be successful. Queens Ignite also has a mentorship component where they can serve as a mentor to girls in Rising Queens and also receive mentorship from adults.
Queens Academy has the great opportunity to be apart of a new initiative focused on providing opportunities to empower women and girls, to address the issue of preventing sexual violence in our communities. Over the next three years, the Women and Girls ExCEL (Exemplifying Change, Empowerment, and Leadership) Program will engage with Queens ExCEL Fellowship in a leadership development program that will strengthen individual participant capacity to communicate, advocate, and see themselves as change agents. We will develop a “Call to Action Project” (CAP) to combat injustices, inequities, and prevent sexual violence within our schools and communities. With support/ guidance from the staff of the New Jersey Division on Women, CWW, and partner agencies, we will develop a CAP that will be implemented in our own schools/communities
Our 1:1 mentoring is a powerful component to our programming. Girls get one on one attention from our dedicated mentors. Girls can expect to make strong bonds and feel supported throughout their mentoring journey !
Do you think the girl in your life would benefit from being apart of a girls empowerment organization? If so enroll her TODAY and she will be apart of a network of girls who empower and motivate each other to be GREAT!
