This young man from Albany, Georgia just made a great contribution to the community, what he’s been doing right now deserved to be called “King” which coencidentaly his name.
King Randall, 21, founded The “X” for Boys program will be opening the New Life Preparatory School for Boys in Albany, Georgia, WALB reported.
Randall told WALB that he will be transforming an old school into a new one to provide more educational opportunities and learning experiences for young Black boys in Albany who might otherwise be drawn into juvenile delinquency and gang activities.
The school will offer traditional educational subjects like reading and math, but students will also learn trades like welding and auto repair. Other offerings will include firearms training and family sciences, as well as a number of clubs that foster and promote literacy.
We need more of this in America, we have a lot of billioners but only few are dedicated to help the less fortunate. These tradesmen are making a fortune and can own their businesses and live their best life.
Here’s what Randall said:
“Doing different workshops teaching young men how to do different skill trades, we’re also doing a book club and teaching them how to read because 93 percent of the children I come into contact with can’t read. But now we have an 86 percent reading comprehension rate,” explained Randall.
Randall said troubled young men in Albany want to better their lives, they just need more opportunity.
“So giving them a space where they’re around a lot of other young men and around other men trying to mold you and train you. I’ve had kids come find me at my house and come knock and ask to join The “X” for Boys. I’ve had kids message me on Instagram, gang members, you name it,” said Randall.
Randall said he worked with the Dougherty County School System to find the perfect location.

King initially funded the organization’s operations solely out of his own pocket but eventually, he started raising money to fund more programs.
Now, he’s got a well-rounded charter school for young black men, and I have a feeling as more people hear about this, his dream will get bigger and spread.
