ALBANY, GA / ACCESSWIRE / November 24, 2020 / In the United States, over three million children annually are victims of child abuse, and some studies indicate that abused children are more likely to develop behavior issues, engage in juvenile delinquency, and later in life, adult criminality. King Randall is a 21-year-old man who founded a youth organization in Albany, Georgia, named The X for Boys. Despite not even past the age of youth himself, he has helped former delinquents stay out of jail by providing productive, educational workshops and safe spaces for them to escape undesirable living conditions.
In King Randall's words, The X for Boys is a "Man-Making Machine." Each troubled child is the result of various factors, including an unconducive home environment, poverty, and lack of direction. Despite their misgivings, even troublemakers are not exempt from the human need to find purpose and better themselves, and the organization ensures that they will be given the opportunity.
The organization hosts numerous field trips, automotive repair and construction workshops, a book club, and provides a safe space for young men ages 11-17 who may be having trouble in life. With the motto "Let US make a man," it operates with the mission of teaching these young men ways not just to survive but thrive, and in effect, change their lives for the better. At the same time, the organization promotes the idea that if members of a community work together, they can change families, communities, countries, and the world.
King Randall funded the organization's operations out of pocket since it began, but there is only so much that one man alone can do. Presently, he is in the process of raising money to found a boarding school for The X for Boys, which will be named The Life Preparatory School for Boys. With the foundation of this school, he hopes to expand his reach and help more boys in the community.
It is not uncommon to hear complaints about how young men are these days, but rarely are there people who actually try to do something about it. This is also a contributing factor to the immense gratitude of the boys who join the organization, and that gratitude and the genuine change that they exhibit, for King Randall, make all the hard work worthwhile.
King Randall is a 21-year-old young man who founded The X for Boys, a youth organization in Albany, Georgia, when he was 19. In the first year, he hosted a summer camp in his home where he taught 20 young men essential life skills, including cooking, repairing, and maintaining cars and things at home. In addition, the boys learn to respect weapons by undergoing firearms training as well.
Reading and comprehension is another essential life skill as well, and the founder worked to improve the boys' reading and writing by starting a book club. With weekly book club meetings, The X for Boys has an 86% reading comprehension rate.
King Randall takes pride in the work he does and the effects he has on these children's lives. Still, he knows that he can go further with the extent of the change he can make for more children. Learn more about The X for Boys using the details listed below.
