Conversations with our Youth
The King of Kings Foundation is a partner at Long Island City High School. Their mission is to inform young people about the dangers of gang violence, drugs, guns and the lack of education. King of Kings has been a partner at the school through Zone 126 for the past two school years, this year they are deepening their work by integrating a gender specific model. Teachers and student’s reception of the program has been incredible and they are eager to welcome the King of Kings facilitators on a weekly basis.
The female group, which is called Sister Circle, and male group, called Brother Box, gather in separate spaces. The facilitators, which are led by the Feurtado Brothers, Todd and Lance, provide meaningful conversations about peer pressure and life issues. These meaningful interactions generate discussions around how these topics hinder the social, physical, economic, cultural and spiritual growth of young adults. The engaging work utilizes dialogue, role playing and de-escalation tactics to help each student become more self-aware.
