The K.I.N.G.S program is a smacking program that supports the development of the students 'positive self-esteem, and even though it focuses more on behaviors and character traits, the program is a character education program, with the emphasis on education.
The program was designed by educators with students in mind, and therefore its use is best applied when it is taught in context of how the Black boys exemplify their qualities as students in school and out of school.
Therefore, if you are looking to support your student, enhance your school's positive culture amongst this minority group of young males, or desire to raise leaders who will impact your school and ultimately their community for the better, then you can connect with us about leading a course of the K.I.N.G.S program in your school this year.
KIND, INTELLIGENT, NOBLE, GIFTED, SONS OF QUEENS
The K.I.N.G.S program is a character development self-worth enrichment program designed to enhance the positive self- image of each student in the program. Through explicit lessons engaging activities, and fun interactions with one another, the students will identify within themselves their ability to be KIND, INTELLIGENT, NOBLE, and GIFTED as well as understand what it means to live respectfully as a SON OF A QUEEN.
OUR KINGS believed that every young Black boy has the capacity to demonstrate these qualities; however, in order for them to be expressed more consistently it takes positive influences to recognize it in them, dedicated figures to direct them in how to display the qualities and the students to believe the best of themselves. OUR KINGS desires to do that work our Black boys.
K.I.N.G.S program is set up for students (Black boys) to be able to learn their self-worth gain self-confidence and have self-awareness as they attend school.
