BECOME A MEMBER.
K.I.N.G.S keeper is a membership program designed for boys 7-12 years of age K.I.N.G.S keeper program runs from September- May. In this program our boys will be involved in activities where they learn trades, receive tutoring, participate in community events, as well as sharpen the tools to express themselves through writing.
Lastly, OUR KINGS understands that a key component to each young Black boy is a son of a Queen; therefore, every mother who has a boy in the program will have access to workshops (via zoom or in person) and a full community of mothers. The topics for the workshops are all specific to motherhood and include healthcare for children, mental health for self and son, education on the education system on who your son is, how to support your son in school, and much more. By the end of this program the Black boys will stand taller and their mothers will smile brighter.
