UYKQ Queens Program is a mentoring and empowerment group that follows the group mentoring model, matching a group of young ladies with a mentor that have similar interests. UYKQ Queens program focuses on girls’ empowerment, leadership, life-skills, and college readiness.  Participants are able to choose from five mentoring groups that correspond to their primary interest: Literary Arts, Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Life Skills and College and Career Readiness. Each participant will also take part in workshops, group discussions, and community service projects. 
Each session will touch on:

⦁    Achieving in school
⦁    Enhancing confidence 
⦁    Nutrition and wellness
⦁    Digital citizenship
⦁    Proper hygiene
⦁    Understanding cultural norms
⦁    Embracing self-worth

Specialized workshops focus on making smart decisions, managing peer pressure, achieving in school, fostering self-love, putting your best professional self forward, perfecting communication skills, and many more topics. The objective is to build a strong community of support between young women and their mentors. The program advances the educational and career aspirations of our young women through a broad range of opportunities and experiences.
