Butterfly Queens Youth Leadership Academy was designed  to empower high potential girls of color, as they transform into 21st Century leaders who will learn to spread their wings, flying boldly and gracefully throughout their communities, using their voices, presence, and essence to make a positive difference locally and beyond.

Your financial support will assist with: Curriculum Materials, Academy T-Shirts, Camp Retreat Getaway Fees, Recognition Items, Transportation Costs, Technology Devices and direct costs related to expand the program's capacity to promote leadership and positive changes locally and beyond. 

Seeking Financial Supporters Who:

Note- girls representative of all races & cultures are welcomed to join.
