“Rising Queens is a program apart of Queens Academy which is a girls empowerment organization. We provide girls of color with essential SEL workshops and mentors to assist in their growth and development. Our programming impact will increase positive behaviors in school, increase academic achievement, increase self-awareness, and promote civic engagement. Through our programming girls will have the opportunities to focus on social skills, character building, self-esteem, and mental health. They will also take field trips, which will allow girls to practice the skills they learn outside of school walls.”
