Who We Are 

Queens Royal Priest Hood sees the value in providing the city’s youth with the tools, resources, and support they need in order to reach their potential. Ever since our founding in 2014, we have strived to create more safe, vibrant and compassionate neighborhoods. 


Mission Statement

Established in 2014, Queens Royal Priest Hood, Inc.  provides youth in underserved communities  opportunities in sports, the Arts, and entertainment.


We aim to develop strong children, families, and communities across the city through academic readiness, character development, and social enrichment activities.


Most importantly, we foster a nurturing environment in which children can embrace their identity and be supported.


In 2014, Esther "Queen" Arroyo set out to make a difference in the lives of youth all throughout Far Rockaway, NY by providing them with the tools, resources and support they need in order to shape them into the leaders of tomorrow. Over the years, Queens Royal Priest Hood, Inc. has grown to be a leading children's organization in New York and Maryland, offering youth in targeted communities a chance to reach their fullest potential.


We aim to prepare young people in making the best life choices for themselves, their families, and their communities.




We value honesty, respect, and responsibility - and go above and beyond to instill these values into the minds of our youth.





We prepare our youth to become responsible, actively engaged global citizens and leaders.


+ Generosity + Kindness


We believe in and practice the true act of caring and know how important it is to demonstrate a sincere concern for others. 

We aim to create a long lasting and positive impact on all of the community’s youth through our wide range of enrichment programs.
