Saving The Youth Stars™ was founded by Kween Sankofa Bey also known as 1st Ladee’ Kween in 2012 in order to create a positive outlet for the youth. With today’s world advancing at such a rapid pace and teenagers becoming exposed to sex, drugs and the fast life. Kween wanted to create a program to help mentor and guide the youth in the right direction helping them become productive members of society. Kween became a 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 and it was bad but not this bad. Today’s society has no respect, no moral’s, no values, and no mind of their own. Everyone is busy trying to follow a trend we don’t have individuals we have groups. 1st Ladee’ Kween is on a mission and wants to show the youth there is so much more to life if they just see how precious their life is and the importance they have to the world. One of the 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. Growing up in the 90’s the O.G.’s never glorified being pimps and drug dealers. They actually carried themselves as business men, and they followed a code of respect and honor. These days instead of turning the kids to the schools like the O.G.’s did in my day we are turning the kids toward the streets with everything we are showing them. Growing up as a huge fan of Tupac’s, now listening to his interviews or his music she can hear the pain he felt for the World and how he wished he could change everything bad he saw.Kween now carries that same feeling when it comes to these kids because having two of her own she understands they don’t deserve the world we live in. “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 in Saving The Youth. She feels like if she wants to see change in the world she first needs to become the change she wants to see.
Teens, and these young adults to come to me with questions, concerns, problems, issues, about school, family, relationships, if they have a parent on drugs, in jail, pregnant teens, if they need to vent because somebody has made them mad, anything they have on their minds and they feel there is no one they can talk to or relate with then they can send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with their name, phone number, best time to call and short description of what’s on their mind and I will get back with them within 24 hrs. We can talk as long or as short as they want. I just want them to know somebody is here for them!!
