The Queens of the Castle is a select group of female leaders and local organizations whose membership is comprised of all, or mostly, women. This group of esteemed leaders represents women who are mothers, grandmothers, aunts, nieces, and sisters and have a desire, and the capacity, to serve as key advocates for Growing Kings and our work in the field of supporting boys of color. Our Queens will also be the key ingredient in the success of our Royal Suppers – a major component of our Measures of a Man program.
The Queens of the Castle are vital to the success of Growing Kings as they agree to commit their time, talents, and resources in an effort to provide our organization’s leadership with the wisdom and tools needed to better serve our parents. With the help of this group, we are better positioned to be industry innovators and thought leaders in male youth development. Each volunteer will be required to complete an in-person training session on program expectations and best practices for engagement. The only skills required for participation in this program is an open heart and a desire to improve the outcome of all families.
