Young Queens is a gender specific group for girls that have been involved in the Juvenile Justice System, or for those who engage in “at-risk” behaviors. The girls are either court mandated or referred by an agency or community member. The group meets once a week on Wednesdays from 5-8pm. The goal is to promote self esteem, enhance academic performance, develop leadership abilities, anti-violence education and empower young women to make positive choices in their lives. The group is also linked with an Intensive Case Management component which is part of the Mission Girls center.
Mission Girls All-Nighters The All-Nighters hosted by Young Queens is part of Mission Girls’ violence prevention education, where we host an alternative evening of fun, positive and engaging activities in order to diminish the number of adolescent girls who are participating in “at-risk” behaviors. The event occurs twice a month from 5p- Midnight, under the supervision of two staff members and safe passage home for the girls. This is an alternative event for “at-risk” girls to begin their weekend on a positive path.
Case Management Mission Girls provides Intensive Case Management for girls ages 13 and up, who have been involved in the Juvenile Justice System, who engage in “at-risk” behavior, and/or have low academic performance. Case Manager requires at least two one-on-one meetings with clients for 1 hour minimum-depending on their level. The services offered are court and youth advocacy, goal development, school visits, home visits, and life skills training. Click here to download the Young Queens Referral Form.
