OUR HISTORY

Urban Youth Kings & Queens Inc. was founded December 12, 2016 by Haneef Hill. His vision was to stabilize and strengthening children in the community through productive programming while improving the living experiences of the youth he served. Hill developed the organization as a streamline for him to give back to his community while understanding the importance of community programs, and providing adequate opportunities to youth.
 
With great leadership and a vision, Urban Youth Kings & Queens Inc. has its plate full while continuously searching for ways to bridge the gap between dropout rates, college education, and poverty.  UYKQ will continue to develop successful programming opportunities that collectively unites sports, recreation and educational programs while making an impact in the communities it serves. From the words of our CEO, “developing Student Athletes is the Key. All our participants will understand the importance of not only being competitive on the playing field, but also being competitive in life”.
