Since 2019, The X for Boys program has transformed the lives of young boys in Albany, GA.

From starting our work inside my kitchen to running a resource center and a 41,000 square foot school, we have come a long way thanks to our supporters and sponsors.

This year, we are excited to officially open the doors to Life Preparatory School for Boys, a non-profit educational program that teaches our boys:

  • Core curriculum such as reading, writing, and arithmetic
  • Outdoor survival
  • Etiquette
  • Basic home improvement
  • Basic automotive repair
  • Nuclear Family structure
  • Foreign language
  • Business management
  • Driver education
  • Offsite firearms training


In Albany, GA, our boys face significant challenges that confront them daily:

  1. The Albany metro area stands as the most dangerous city in Georgia
  2. Albany has the highest concentrated poverty rate of any metro city in Georgia
  3. Nearly 75% of Dougherty Country Schools have economically disadvantaged students
  4. In the same county, only 24% of elementary students tested at or above proficiency in reading, 30% at math
  5. Only 28% of high school students tested at or above proficient for reading, only 19% for math

These are just some of the issues our youth face.

But rather than leaving them to die in these circumstances, The X for Boys and Life Preparatory will change the course that will transform our boys into strong men.

This is school choice in action.


Since launching our work in 2019, we have been fully funded by generous donors like you.

With each campaign, we've shared testimony and videos of how your contributions are helping us achieve our goals.

Now that we've purchased our school building, it's time to renovate and prepare it for our grand opening on September 12, 2022.

Our aggressive $350,000 campaign will help us finalize all steps to ensure we are fully functional.


Funds towards the campaign will be spent as follow:

  1. Flooring: $40,000
  2. Paint: $5,000
  3. Toilets: $2,500
  4. Ceiling tiles: $5,000
  5. Lighting: $10,000
  6. Furniture for classrooms and offices: $50,000
  7. Plumbing: $25,000
  8. Electricity: $10,000
  9. Gym remodeling: $30,000
  10. Elevator repair: $10,000
  11. Steeple removal: $7,500
  12. HVAC (13 units): $130,000
  13. Gas and transportation: $25,000


With each milestone we hit, we will share video stories to show you how your contributions are being spent. To learn more about our program and to watch our media features, visit TheXforBoys.org.
