On Saturday, May 20, Queens Community House (QCH), one of the borough's largest social service organizations, will be hosting its 24th Annual Youth Leadership Conference under its Access for Young Women (AFYW) program.
“Prior to learning about QCH, I was a provider at another childcare network, At the time, I thought it was good that the providers were left to their own devices. We didn’t have much oversight, there wasn’t much direction, and we didn’t get much information.
“When I was a little girl, I wanted to be an artist, but I didn’t pursue those interests as an adult. When I retired from full-time work in 2017, I decided to find a way to reawaken some of that creative energy.
