When King Randall was 19-years-old, he saw the glaring need to support teenage boys become healthy, skilled, and self-loving members of their communities. That’s when he started an after-school program that provided a safe space where participants learned vocational, literacy, and other life-skills.
His work with the after-school program inspired Randall to do more. He really wanted to start a charter school. So, he contacted the Dougherty County School System Superintendent and inquired if there were any school buildings not being used. The day Randall made that phone call, was the day he found out 3 schools were available. One of them has now become the site for the New Life Preparatory School for Boys.
Randall’s 21-year-old example is a wonderful reminder of the power of young adults. His actions underscore what can become available in life when more is imagined and pursued. To learn more about the young Brother and his efforts, click here.
