Reminding Our Youth About Leadership- ROYAL
Vision: ROYAL was created to specifically attend to the needs of young girls in rural communities.
- Empower and promote self-love, self-esteem, and motivation
- Educate girls on life skills, healthy coping skills, and decision-making skills
- Effectively involve girls who are at risk out of the influence of gangs and drugs
- Encourage girls to further their education
- Equip girls with tools to prevent unplanned pregnancy
ROYAL programming intends to prevent young girls from getting involved with negative elements by building self-esteem and empowering them to make healthy choices. The goal of working with girls at the critical ages of 7-12 is to help them build self-esteem, develop life skills, and develop positive motivations so they are equipped with the tools to help them achieve their goals and avoid getting into trouble as they physically and developmentally mature, especially before they enter their teenage years and high school.
There is a strong need and urge to empower girls. In 2013, African American girls, the fastest-growing segment of the juvenile justice population, were 20 percent more likely to be detained than white girls, while American Indian girls were 50 percent more likely.Young ladies need to know that Girls Can do, and be anything. Racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, and other oppressive forces persist at institutional and individual levels in American society and disproportionately affect girls and women, especially women of color and women living in poverty. Girls today are exposed to sexual violence and abuse, domestic violence and abuse, relationship violence, unplanned pregnancy, drug use and abuse, prostitution, direct and indirect gang involvement, involvement with the criminal justice system, influential media exposure, unrealistic and unhealthy body expectations, inhabiting gender expectations, and poverty.

Navigating the University System
Vision: Navigating the University System will provide support and structure to students interested in pursuing a college path.
NUS is a college readiness program created to support students in the 10th-12th grade of high school. This course was developed to give students an insight on an online course, and the skills, tools, and resources needed to succeed in one. Every year in the United States, nearly 60% of first-year college students discover that, despite being fully eligible to attend college, they are not ready for postsecondary studies.
Renegotiating the definitions of success begins with the future of our students. The purpose of education is to prepare students for an unknown world by giving them the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to be a positive contribution to the country. An ideal graduate is educated, equipped, efficient, emotionally solid, encouraged, and empowered.
