Saving The YouthStars™ was founded by Kween Sankofa Bey also known as 1st Ladee’ Kween in October of 2011, in order to create a positive outlet for the youth. Kween holds a special place in her heart for for helping the youth. Kween has a passion for helping the youth because Kween knows that today’s teens are advancing at such a rapid pace. With the filters being provided for the photos but no filters being placed on what the youth are exposed to. Kween has seen the destruction and aftermath of what happens when teenagers are exposed to sex, drugs and the fast life before they are developed completely. Kween wanted to create a program to help advise and guide the youth in the right direction helping them become productive members of society.
Kween became pregnant at age 16 and became a teenage mother at the age of 17. Looking at today’s society she is truly afraid of what her kids and others have to face. She never would have dreamed of having to worry about the stuff she does now having a young daughter and son. Growing up as an 80’s baby and 90’s kid she was exposed to drugs, sex and the fast life at an early age causing her to grow up faster than she would have liked.
Today’s generation has been saturated with t.v. shows, music, radio and videos showing them no respect, no moral’s, no values, and how to follow instead of having a mind of their own. Everyone is busy trying to follow a trend instead of being individuals and creating their own lane.
Kween now dedicates her time doing Youth advisor and speaking with the Youth in her local CommU.N.I.T.Y reinforcing individualism and old school principals and values the youth needs in order to be productive and innovative members of society. Kween utilizes The Saving The YouthStars and Hair Lounge Outreach programs as outlets to reach out to the youth in the CommU.N.I.T.Y around the Globe.
Kween is on a mission and wants to show the youth they have unlimited possibilities in life and they are destined for GREATNESS if they apply themselves and exude their Greatest qualities.
Kween believes each generation is responsible for providing the next generation the tools needed to help them operate and navigate the world. One of Kween’s favorite quotes says “young people don’t need critics they need role models”. The Youth can only follow what they are being shown. If all we are showing them is money, drugs, cars, clothes and sex, then that’s all they will be attracted to. So Kween is using the Saving The Youth online resource center to show the Youth positivity, community & nation building, the importance of loving thyself, knowing thyself, the benefits of maintaining your health, how to evolve in life, applying the wisdom you learn from others and so much moor.
“There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them” Dr. Denis Waitley. This inspired Kween even more to take the necessary steps by creating Saving The YouthStars program. She is becoming the change she wants to see in the WORLD!
